The goal of the Education Equity Research Initiative is to advance the field of global education towards equity-oriented education policy and programming. It will do so by creating a vibrant network and strong coalition of organizations committed to developing and consolidating common metrics and a strong research evidence base on education equity.
What We Do
- Tackling known data gaps and under-researched equity issues (e.g. “invisible” populations) to build a strong knowledge and evidence base on the dimensions and magnitude of the challenge
- Examining the effects of policy and program responses to identify and promote promising, equity-oriented pedagogical, resourcing and financing solutions
- Shining a light on the connections between education inequality and fragility, and examining effective solutions related to learning and retention for these populations
- Providing a vital learning forum, bringing together collective knowledge and expertise and connecting professionals at the intersection of research, policy and practice around a common goal and common framework.
