The article discusses the various problems concerning the allocation of state funds to higher education in Kyrgyzstan. It reveals that poverty and the rise of unemployment in the country have resulted to the decline in state budget to support education. It was found that state spending on education fell to 4.9 percent from 7.1 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP) from 1995-2005. It shows that the increase in higher educational institutions managed by the state has led to a downfall in budget allocated for primary and secondary education. In addition, private higher educational institutions play significant role in enhancing the quality of education in secondary schools.
