    The report discusses evidence and cross-country findings from locally led integrity assessments carried out by four civil society organizations – members of NEPC from Georgia (International Institute for Education Policy, Planning and Management – EPPM), Kyrgyzstan (Foundation Education Initiatives Support – FEIS), Moldova (Educational Center PRO DIDACTICA), and Mongolia (Mongolian Education Alliance – MEA).

    In line with the report, specially organized webinar discussed two questions: whether participants in school education in these countries engage in problematic practices (integrity violations) that lead to the abuse of human and financial resources in education and – if the answer is yes – what are the mechanisms and systemic weaknesses which facilitate and motivate such conduct in each country and across country. The webinar provided an overview of the results of the analysis of integrity in the management of human resources and the use private donations in public education, and it will present the main recommendations for follow-up action.

    International Research project “Integrity of Education Systems – Corruption Risks in Teacher Recruitment Process”

    The International Institute for Education Policy, Planning and Management (EPPM) in the framework of the project Integrity of education systems (INTES) conducted assessment on the integrity of schoolteachers’ recruitment. The goal of the integrity assessment was to identify and analyze corruption risks and to find out ways to eliminate the risks.

    The project was a joint initiative by the Center for Applied Policy and Integrity (CAPI) and the Network of Education Policy Centers (NEPC), and it was supported by the Education Support Program of the Open Society Foundations. The project provided civil society organizations – members of NEPC from Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova and Mongolia with initial training on integrity assessments in education, which was followed by locally led explorations of integrity in selected areas and reform priorities in education in these four countries.

    The integrity assessment was conducted concurrently with reform activities carried out in Georgia. Reformatory steps made in schoolteacher recruitment and hiring process created unprecedented number of vacancies in the country and simultaneously, provoked a risk of integrity violations during schoolteacher recruitment process. The focus of the assessment was to identify existing flaws, corruption facts and risks (favoritism, nepotism, etc.) in the process of the recruitment of schoolteachers’ and subsequently produce policy recommendations.
