Join the Education Equity Research Initiative for a discussion of recent progress and remaining challenges around data and evidence. Learn what new projects the Equity Initiative is working on and contribute to the work of advancing equity in education.
The Equity Initiative will be presenting a series of over a thirteen panels at the 2018 CIES conference in Mexico City. You can find the details of each panel below. And be sure to stop by the Equity Initiative booth to lean more about the Initiative's work and how you can be involved.
This symposium to be presented at the UKFIET 2017 conference is formed around a common analytical framework developed by the Equity Initiative for analysis of learning outcomes data, with a differentiated look at program impact. Using a common sequence of analytical steps, all contributors to this panel apply an equity lens to their own programmatic data.
This webinar will present a demonstration and detailed exposition of the structured questions for equity analysis and offer guidance on how they can be used to conduct analyses of education datasets. Following the webinar, attendees will have the know-how and access to a community of practice to guide their own use of the tools.
This webinar will provide more information on the Practical Recommendations for Equity Analysis and share voices across education programs as a means to consolidate current best practices in data collection in education and chart a way forward together.
During the week of March 27, 2017, EACH Rights and RESULTS Educational Fund in partnership with The Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights will launch two reports in Kenya on for profit, fee-charging private schools.
The panel will feature three presentations of research conducted at the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, FHI 360, and USAID on issues of robust measurement of inequality in educational outcomes and resource allocation at the national and programmatic levels.
Please join us after Wednesday's CIES events to celebrate the first year of the Education Equity Research Initiative.
This panel represents the first collaborative analysis across implementing partners answering the structured questions agreed by practitioners in the Education Equity Research Initiative. It offers a cross-agency view of action to improve the ways that we identify and analyze data to address inequity.
CIES 2017: Researching Educational (In)Equality in Contexts of Conflict and Fragility: Hearing from New Scholars from Conflict-Affected Contexts (group roundtable paper session)
The purpose of this roundtable session is twofold, to:
- contribute to the growing scholarship on education equity and conflict
- support the work of scholars from conflict-affected countries
This panel wishes to present and explore in-depth analysis of disaggregated data collected from household-based, citizen-led assessments countries across the PAL Network to focus specifically on those children with inherited and multiple disadvantages that are most likely to be left behind.
The panel addresses the issue of education inequality by reviewing and cataloguing institutional drivers of inequality in educational outcomes, measurement of educational inequality indices related to access by gender, children with disabilities, and location, and over an individual lifecycle.
Particularly in regards to measurement, this panel will help to inform key deliverables of the Equity Initiative, and more broadly will provide the field with information to help better conceptualize the role of household education contributions in determining key life outcomes for children.
CIES 2017: Rethinking equity measurement practices to ensure education goals are met by all (group panel)
This panel synthesizes the findings from systematic reviews, undertaken by the Education Equity Research Initiative, that lay out the current practices in equity measurement by global sources, within educational interventions, and for conflict-affected and fragile contexts.
This workshop aims to provide participants with a stronger understanding of the methodological and measurement challenges surrounding the analysis of educational equity and inequality. This workshop will also present the audience with the work done by the co-authors of an upcoming publication; the International Handbook on Measuring Equity in Education, co-edited by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics and the REAL Centre, Cambridge.
Presenter: Pauline Rose, Cambridge University
Target 4.5 explicitly calls for monitoring of equity in education through the use of parity indices and the disaggregation of all education indicators, in particular for the most vulnerable populations.Advancing this measurement agenda representsa new set of challenges for countries and the international community, which must go beyond traditional models of producing education data. A group of international experts discussed conceptual and methodological challenges associated with Target 4.5. highlighting the global community stands on monitoring needs and actions to be taken to assure robust and relevant monitoring.

Please join us for a panel discussion highlighting the latest progress made in understanding and achieving education equity, followed by a reception with refreshments and hors d’oeuvres.
This event will bring together change makers leading global and national efforts to establish standards and practices for measuring and addressing inequality in education and discuss ways forward to greater understanding and accountability to ensure inclusive and quality education for all by 2030.
FHI 360 and Save the Children cordially invite you to celebrate the launch of the Education Equity Research Initiative. Join us for brief remarks about this collaborative partnership formed to advance the use of research and data for strengthening equity in education followed by hors d’oeuvres and beverages (a cash bar will be available). The program will begin promptly at 7:45 PM.
UNICEF and FHI 360 cordially invite you to a panel discussion examining the newest evidence on the linkages between systematic inequality in education and the risk of violent civil conflict, and the ways of sustaining learning in conflict-affected environments. The panel will bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss the implications of the evidence, the role that education can play in strengthening peace and security, and the ways to advance the importance of investment in educational equity, particularly in fragile environments.
