Date: 10 Dec 2020
Time: 3:00pm - 4:15pm

Event Type: Webinar


Webinar Thursday 10 December 15:00-16:15 GMT

Developing countries have been more successful at widening access to education than raising learning outcomes partly because it is harder to build political support for learning reforms than for widening access. But is this inevitable? This webinar will bring together activists, policymakers/practitioners, and researchers to discuss experiences with the politics of learning reforms, and share lessons about how to hold governments to account for raising learning standards.
