Global Partnership for Education
The "Results for Learning Report" reveals that there has been significant progress in education in developing-country partners of the Global Partnership for Education (Global Partnership or GPE) since 2000: (1) More children are going to school and completing primary education in these countries; (2) Children have a better chance of gaining access to lower-secondary school now than ever before; (3) Efforts to improve the access of girls to school have paid off; (4) The public spending on education in developing-country partners has increased during the last decade; (5) The lack of data of acceptable quality is a major problem in many developing-country partners; (6) Official development assistance (ODA) is being reduced in all sectors, but the reduction is occurring at a more rapid pace in education; (7) GPE developing-country partners are facing a learning crisis; (8) In 2011, 42 million children of primary-school age were still out of school in developing-country partners; and (9) Lower-secondary education is expanding more quickly than primary education. This report provides an analysis of education data and education outcomes to people engaged in or following the work of the Global Partnership for Education (the Global Partnership or GPE). It aims at contributing directly to the dialogue on the development and monitoring of sound education sector policies within the partnership. By focusing the attention of partners on the remaining education challenges that need to be addressed through sector policy development, implementation, and monitoring, the report represents an opportunity to take stock of progress and set a course for improving on the results that have already been achieved. A map of the Global Partnership for Education, along with supplemental tables, are provided in an annex. [For the 2012 Results for Learning Report, see ED566652.]
