DFID have not held any direct discussions with the Government of Burma regarding the reform of the National Education Law. A DFID official attended a briefing with the Burmese Minister of Education on the recent dialogue around the National Education Law on 9 February, but did not provide any comments. DFID’s Minister of State met with Burma’s Deputy Minister for Education in January and encouraged the government of Burma to consult widely on further rules relating to the National Education Law. DFID, together with other International Development Partners, has funded technical support for the Comprehensive Education Sector Review (CESR). This review has informed the development of the National Education Law.
