Sabic-El-Rayess, Amra; Otgonlkhagva, Sarantsetseg

The primary goal of this Financial Crisis Response Project’s component (thereafter “Project”) was to gain insights into the school uniform related issues and inform the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (“MECS”) on the ways to lower the school uniform cost in the Mongolian market. This study drew on the data collected via 20 interviews and focus groups with students, teachers, parents, manufacturers, and educational officials, as well as data gathered by surveying 462 teachers, students, and parents in Ulanbaataar, Dornod, and Bayan Ulgh provinces. The data analysis centered around key descriptive statistics and cost simulation scenarios(24 Scenarios, each including 4 SubScenarios). This study reviews the key findings and recommendations aimed at improving the school uniform quality, supply, and pricing.
