Share your views on the forthcoming 2015 EFA Global Monitoring Report [If you are not comfortable writing in English, you can post in any other UN language (русский, 中文, français, العربية, Español) and we’ll translate it for you]
The 2015 Education for All Global Monitoring Report (EFA GMR) will review how much the EFA movement has contributed to ensuring that all children, young people and adults have benefited from the right to an education that meets their basic learning needs. The Report will provide a definitive assessment of overall progress at the national, regional and global level toward the six EFA goals that were established in Dakar, Senegal, in 2000. The assessment will establish whether the goals were achieved and, if not, whether progress slowed or accelerated since 2000. It will pay particular attention to gaps between those groups who benefited from progress and those who did not. This assessment will provide lessons for the framing of post-2015 education goals and strategies.
We would like to hear your views on the topic through this on-line consultation over the next six weeks. The GMR team is particularly keen to receive your thoughts on the areas noted below, including suggestions on relevant data analysis and case studies. The views of researchers, academics, governments, non-governmental organizations, aid donors, teachers, youth and anyone with an interest in education and development are extremely welcome.
Please post your contributions as comments to this blog, providing web links to research reports, policy papers, evaluations, and other documents or datasets which you think would be useful for the GMR team.
If you would rather email your comments, or have attachments of documents or data that you would like to share with the GMR team, please send them directly to firstname.lastname@example.org with #edpost2015 as a subject heading.
- identify the big changes that have taken place in educational policies and programmes since the World Education Conference in Dakar vis-à-vis the six EFA goals highlighting the factors behind these changes, including the role of the EFA movement;
- assess to what extent such policies and programmes were successful in making progress towards EFA objectives; and
- analyse how the present policy environment may influence the achievement of a more ambitious education agenda after 2015 and what monitoring tools will be needed.
We would like to hear your views as to whether the note on our forthcoming Report captures the key factors that have affected progress towards each goal or not. To what extent – and how – did the EFA movement contribute to what was achieved? What lessons can be drawn from the EFA movement as a new international education agenda is taking shape?
Thank you for your time and interest in our Report – we look forward to hearing from you.
