Despite significant global challenges, more children attend school than ever before. With this progress comes the possibility of more integrated and effective development programming, where schools not only educate but also promote equality, social inclusion, and encourage better lifelong personal and economic outcomes for all learners.
Access to education is a fundamental human right. Improved education systems and programmes can promote lifelong learning, as well as emphasise gender equality, build social and financial inclusion, impact health outcomes, and improve development outcomes for the most vulnerable learners, including those affected by displacement, conflict and fragility.
Our work in education promotes a cross-sectoral, whole-child approach to measuring the effectiveness of education. Through learning partnerships and capacity building in monitoring and evaluation we provide data, information and evidence to our partners to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of education systems and programmes across the world.
