A Guide for Strengthening Gender Equality and Inclusiveness in Teaching and Learning Materials.
The Guide provides important facts, insights, and guidance to help address the need for improved inclusivity for materials in the primary grades. It provides worksheets for those developing or revising texts to evaluate the inclusiveness of the teaching and learning material. The guide encourages writers and revisers to examine the frequency of representation and gender-equitable and inclusive illustrations, while also highlighting gender-equitable and inclusive language and gender-equitable and transformational roles. It recommends that individuals with various physical, cognitive, and/or sensory disabilities should be depicted in proportion to the frequency of the general population.
Advancing WASH in Schools Monitoring
This publication provides global, regional and national WinS coverage estimates. Similar to the initial phases of the JMP, the available data is largely limited to administrative reporting, not based on independent surveys. Country data may also not reflect national or minimum global standards for WinS. Although, these and other issues pose challenges to data quality and reliability, this document provides the most comprehensive picture of WinS coverage to date.
