Millions Learning Global Call for Case Studies

Brookings Institute

In 41 countries around the world, one in three students who leave school after grade five or six still cannot read all or part of a sentence. Whether they live in Detroit or New Delhi, too often our children are failing to learn the very basics—even after spending years in school. And this is on top of the 58 million children who remain out of school. To address this crisis, we must reach millions of children with interventions that not only get them into school but ensure that, while there, they acquire knowledge and skills needed to lead healthy, safe and productive lives.  

Celebrating Progress, Remaining Steadfast and Asking What’s Next for Girls’ Education

Brookings Institute

Over the past two decades there have been major improvements in girls’ education. In 1990, less than 50 percent of girls in low-income countries were enrolled in primary school; today that figure has climbed to nearly 80 percent. However, much work remains to be done. Thirty million girls still miss out on basic education, and the challenge for those that now attend school is that they learn while there. Indeed, 250 million children cannot read or write, even after many of them have spent four years in school.

In the run-up to 2015 and beyond, the global education community must work together to improve learning and propose practical actions to deliver and measure progress.
