Human rights to evaluate evidence on non-state involvement in education

This background paper prepared for the Global Education Monitoring Report provides both the rationale and the framework for re-centring a human rights’ perspective in education sector analysis.

Policy Brief | Public education works: five lessons from low- and middle-income countries

Public education is often critiqued as ineffective and inefficient. However, where shortcomings in public education are identified, they can often be attributed not to lack of capacity, but lack of political will. Reviewing seven examples of public education in developing countries, this research shows that, in direct contrast to widely disseminated ideas, public education can be the most effective, efficient, and transformative approach to education, and, crucially, it is possible to develop quality public education everywhere.
