What are the short and long-term effects of inequality in education? What policies have governments taken to address education inequalities? What is the most appropriate way to measure inequality? EPDC's bold new research initiative seeks to provide answers to these questions.
This brief quantifies what we can expect in terms of demand for secondary education in the coming decade, with a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa and on lower secondary education. We also highlight school resource challenges the region will face as it expands secondary education while continuing to expand primary education in pursuit of universal primary education.
Our education inequality profiles present country level data on ethnic, religious and subnational inequalities in educational attainment, for 16 countries with available data. Learn more in our recent blog posts, from where you can access the profiles.
This research brief presents findings from the National Learning Assessment Mapping Project (NLAMP), which collected national assessment metadata from 125 countries from all six regions of the world, and created a database of over 300 assessments, categorizing their subject focus areas, which learning domains they fall in, and at which point in the schooling cycle they are administered.
EPDC's most recent policy brief finds that although access to education is close to universal in most countries, a significant proportion of those who reach the upper primary grades never gain basic literacy skills
