TABLE 4. Youth leading efforts to reduce corruption and promote transparency in education across Eurasia

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Corruption in education (e.g. bribes, embezzlement, nepotism, etc.) has a wide-reaching negative impact on any society by undermining education access and quality and exacerbating social cleavages. Though considerably studied, corruption in education still hinders many education systems/institutions across the world. Measures to promote transparency are often overlooked and corrupt practices–especially petty corruption e.g. bribing a professor—are perceived to be “normal” by many. This is certainly true in Eastern Europe and many of its universities. The USAID-funded Social Legacy Program analyzed perceptions/understanding of corruption in education by students in Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Macedonia to design a program where youth could lead the way for a more transparent and accountable education in their countries. The result is a modest but interesting two-component model: 1) students are educated about these issues and understand the cost of corruption in education for them as individuals (e.g. graduating from a corrupt university affects their employment prospects) and as society; 2) youth partner with universities that lack codes of conduct (CoC) to develop these and outline proper behavior for students, faculty and staff and the sanctions if the ‘rules of the game’ are not observed. This model became an effective platform for youth to lead the efforts toward achieving transparent institutions. Developing CoC illustrates what can be accomplished in collaboration with the education stakeholders. The first step, however, is to educate people about corruption in education–what it is, where it comes from, how it impacts, and what can be done to prevent it.
