New initiative aims to improve education around the world

The World Bank announces a project, which could give low- to middle-income governments more insight into the state of their education system

Improving how students around the world learn is the driver behind a new initiative being developed by The World Bank, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the UK’s Department for International Development.

 

The goal of the Global Education Policy Dashboard is to give governments in low- and middle-income countries insight into learning gaps — the practices, policies and politics — in their classrooms. This comes following a World Bank 2018 study, which showed the enormity of the “learning crisis.”

 

“[The dashboard] will highlight gaps between current practice and what the evidence suggests would be most effective in promoting learning,” reads a World Bank press release. “It will give governments a way to set priorities and track progress as they work to close those gaps.”

 

The system is being piloted in 13 countries this year.

 

Education is at the heart of what we do at Christian Children’s Fund of Canada. We know that without providing education, children and their families can’t create positive, lasting change in their lives.
