Accountability in Education: The Role of Citizens in Accelerating Learning for All

March 6, 2018 | 14:00pm

The last 50 years have seen a great expansion of schooling in many developing countries, but education outcomes are lagging behind. As countries have committed to ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning (Sustainable Development Goal 4), the World Development Report 2018 (WDR 2018) – LEARNING to Realize Education’s Promise – warns that there is a “learning crisis”.

Please join the World Bank’s Global Partnership for Social Accountability’s (GPSA) together with the World Bank’s Global Practice on Governance, Global Practice on Education, Basic Education Coalition and members of the GPSA’s Steering Committee for a Round Table discussion about the contribution that collaborative social accountability can make in the education sector in general and specifically towards addressing the learning crisis.

The GPSA works with over 50 governments and more than 260 civil society and private sector partners towards solving governance challenges around the world. The GPSA portfolio has a set of projects where promising examples of civil society, governments and other stakeholders use collaborative social accountability to improve education around the world.
