IBTCI led a performance evaluation of the three-year Georgia Education Management Project (EMP). IBTCI’s evaluation examined whether the EMP project was effective in introducing a new formula for school financing in Georgia, developing the Education Management Information System (EMIS) for the Ministry of Education and Science (MES), and establishing the first Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Educational Administration program in a Georgian university. Evaluation results were used to help USAID better understand the current state of the management of the education system in Georgia and changes brought about by the EMP project and to assist in planning future education sector activities. IBTCI conducted key informant interviews (KIIs) with development partners, USAID, Georgia’s Ministry of Education, Ilia State University, and over 400 Georgian school principals/faculty members across 10 regions, including Adjara, Gurja, Tbilisi, Imereti, Kakheti, Mtskheta-Mtianeti, Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti, Samtskhe-Javakehti, Kvemo Kartli, and Shida Kartli.
