As proposed to H.E Nechirvan Barzani, President of The Kurdistan Region, by Dr. Randall Rhodes, President of the American University of Kurdistan, a national conversation on K-19 Education composed exclusively of national stakeholders involved in policymaking and the administration of elementary, secondary, and higher education will be conducted at AUK on September 19th, 2021.
The aim is to identify opportunities to groom the current system into an exemplary model for Iraq and the Middle East with the focus on workforce preparedness, not just aiming to accommodate Kurdistan’s economic needs of today, but into the future with a more comprehensive approach to education from elementary through to bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels (K-19).
The conference will include speeches by H.E. President Nechirvan Barzani and H.E. Prime Minister Masrour Barzani, alongside panel discussions with Kurdistan Regional Government ministers and NGO representatives.
