What have we learned about the Learning Crisis?

Sharing core norms and values
Posted May 24, 2019 | Brookings Institution, Michelle Kaffeberger

Learning in many developing countries is in crisis, at a scale which calls for dramatic improvement. Learning varies by wealth, with the poor on average about 20 percentage points less likely to be numerate than the well-off. At its current pace, Peru would need 18 years to reach the OECD’s average learning attainment, while Colombia would need more than 700 years. In this analysis for the Brookings Institution, Michelle Kaffeberger underscores the need to improve learning outcomes for all - not just to equalise currently low rates of learning. The scale of the problem suggests that education systems, which have successfully delivered high levels of schooling, now need to be reoriented to deliver not just for schooling but also learning.
