  •  New Global Education Monitoring Report focuses on accountability in education
    News: New Global Education Monitoring Report focuses on accountability in education
    UNESCO’s 2017/8 Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report highlights the responsibility of governments to provide universal quality education and stresses that accountability is indispensable in achieving this goal. The Report, released today, warns that disproportionate blame on any one actor for systemic educational problems can have serious negative side effects, widening inequality and damaging learning. “Education is a shared responsibility between us all– governments, schools, teachers, parents and private actors,” said UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova. “Accountability for these responsibilities defines the way teachers teach, students learn, and governments act. It must be designed with care and with the principles of equity, inclusion and quality in mind.”

  • Evidence Review: Mitigating threats to girls
    Evidence Review: Mitigating threats to girls' education in conflict affected contexts - current practice
    Recognising the particular vulnerabilities affecting girls in conflict-affected contexts, this review focuses on girls’ education. The cost of not investing in education for girls far exceeds the cost of investing. Girls’ education increases economic growth, increases women’s wages, improves women’s health, reduces child marriage, and increases individual and community empowerment. Furthermore, actions that enable girls’ education in conflict-affected contexts can create ‘windows of opportunity’ for transformative change that may not have existed prior to the conflict.
