Young Lives to launch 2016-17 school survey findings
Young Lives will launch the findings from surveys carried out in 2016-17 that examined the quality of learning outcomes at upper primary and secondary level in Ethiopia, India and Vietnam on 4 September.
At the event, the Young Lives Education team will share key findings on the variation in learning achievement within and between countries, and on the ‘value-added’ by different schools and school types in these countries.
Particular attention will be given to cross-country findings on quality learning, enabled by the development of learning metrics designed to be both contextually relevant and internationally comparable. Initial findings from Young Lives’ most recent school survey in Peru, conducted in 2017, will also be presented.
Using unique evidence from the Young Lives school surveys, this event offers a space to discuss and debate key issues in global education, including the development of global learning metrics, addressing inequalities within education systems, the assessment of ‘21st century skills’ in low and middle-income countries, and the privatisation of education.
The event will be chaired by Professor Pauline Rose, director of the REAL Centre, and the discussant will be Lucy Crehan, consultant at Education Development Trust and author of ‘Cleverlands’.
