Timeline of Mongolia's Educational System from 1911 to 2003
1911 -- The first formal and secular education in Mongolia begins.
1935 -- 55% of all party members in Mongolia are illiterate. Only 2.7% of all children are enrolled in secular state schools. 13% of all children are enrolled in monastic schools.
1938 -- Stalin orders the destruction of nearly all monasteries in Mongolia.
1940 -- Compulsory state education is created for children between the ages of eight and eighteen. Education is paid for by the state, and accounts for more than 15 percent of Mongolia's GDP. Mongolia's educational system is also largely supported by funds from the Soviet Union.
1941 -- Under Stalin's orders, in the 1941 the traditional Mongol script, based on Uighur script, is replaced by the Cyrillic alphabet.
1942 -- The Mongolian State University, Mongolia's first university, opens its doors with three departments: Medical, Pedagogical, and Agricultural studies.
1990 -- Mongolia reaches a literacy rate of over 90% and before 1990, reaches over 95% literacy.
1991- Privatization creates new challenges in education and daily life. Universities are no longer free, and privatization forces many herders to grow larger amounts of livestock to become profitable, requiring many of the children (predominately boys) to remain on the land rather than receive an education.

The EBRD President, Sir Suma Chakrabarti, is visiting Mongolia on 20 March 2015. This is his second visit to the country at the helm of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the first visit since the new government was formed in November 2014.
Sir Suma will meet President Elbegdorj, Prime Minister Saikhanbileg, the Governor of the Bank of Mongolia, top ministers, private sector entrepreneurs and bankers, representatives of international financial institutions and the diplomatic community.
The President will stress the importance of Mongolia and the whole of the Central Asian region to the EBRD. He will discuss ways to re-energise transition to a free market economy, and to boost reform and investment.
He will also use the opportunity to introduce to the authorities the recently appointed EBRD Managing Director for Turkey and Central Asia, Natalia Khan Zhenkova, who will be based at an EBRD regional hub in Istanbul.
The EBRD President will also visit a client of the Bank – agribusiness company TESO – on the outskirts of Ulaanbaatar.
“We want to help boost growth in Mongolia. We look forward to working with the government on steps to improve the investment climate and the diversification of the economy. We would like to see Mongolia once more leading the world in economic growth, just as it did a few years ago,” said Sir Suma ahead of the visit.
The EBRD has so far invested over US$ 1.2 billion in Mongolia in various sectors of the economy. Central Asia as a whole has seen a growth of investment in recent years, reaching US$ 11.5 billion to date.

At the end of 2009, the joint project between UNESCO-UNEVOC and the Mongolian UNEVOC Centre to develop training materials and a training plan for young herders in Mongolia came to a successful close.
The project involved reviewing and updating existing learning materials and exploring approaches to ecological problems, health matters and farming issues faced by Mongolian herders. The project added value to the Mongolian government’s effort to establish “Herders Schools” through which important new knowledge, skills and understanding are transferred to the young generation of herders and into the national TVET system.
In the context of this project, three handbooks for training herders were developed and published with inputs from Mongolian experts in ecology, health, farming and herding at the end of 2009. The handbooks facilitate the acquisition of new skills, especially entrepreneurial skills and skills that support sustainability of the herders’ lifestyle. Through partnerships with the National Commission for UNESCO and the Mongolian Social Welfare and Labour Service Agencies, the books were distributed in 3 Western provinces of Mongolia.
