YEREVAN, MAY 31, ARMENPRESS; Another 37 secondary schools in
Armenia will have computer labs before the start of a new academic
year. Introduction of computer labs is part of a World Bank US$19
million equivalent credit for the Armenia Education Quality and
Relevance Project.

The International Development Association (IDA) Credit was approved
last year to assist the government in its efforts to improve the
quality and relevance of the Armenian school system to meet the
challenges of the knowledge society. This is the first phase of a
three-phase, ten-year commitment by the World Bank to supporting
educational change in Armenia.

So far 130 schools were furnished with computer labs as part of this
project. The Education Quality and Relevance project has four main
components: National Curriculum and Assessment System, Educational
Technologies in Schools, Teacher Professional Development, and System
Management and Efficiency.
