WEBINAR – The Politics of Learning Reforms: How can Governments be Held to Account?


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 brings together activists, policymakers/practitioners & researchers to discuss experiences with the politics of learning reforms, & share lessons about how to hold governments to account for raising learning standards.
