Overcoming Africa’s learning crisis - IIEP Strategic debate

© All rights reserved

Join our upcoming Strategic Debate with World Bank education experts to map out concrete policy steps that aim to align education systems with learning.

Across Africa, some 50 million children are out of school. For those in school, most are not learning the basic skills needed to thrive in the future. According to the new World Bank report, Facing Forward, Schooling for Learning in Africa, the continent faces a “severe learning crisis” that jeopardizes economic growth and the well-being of its citizens.

What will it take to overcome this learning crisis, and provide all African children and youth with access to quality education? Join our upcoming Strategic Debate with World Bank education experts to map out concrete policy steps that aim to align education systems with learning.

Speakers:
Sajitha Bashir, Practice Manager, Education, World Bank
Marlaine Lockheed, Visiting Lecturer in the Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University
Elizabeth Ninan, Senior Education Specialist, World Bank
Hugues Moussy, Head of Research, IIEP-UNESCO (discussant)
Paul Coustère, Deputy Director, IIEP-UNESCO (moderator)
