The Global Education Challenge: Scaling up to Tackle the Learning Crisis

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Jul 28, 2019 | Brookings Institution, Alice Albright

Some 263 million children and young people are out of school, overwhelmingly in Least Developed Countries and Lower Middle-income Counteies. On current trends, a far larger number - 825 million young people - will not have the literacy, numeracy, and digital skills needed to compete for the jobs of 2030. A lack of teachers, books and other learning materials is a persistent problem throughout education systems, from early grades through to teaching colleges, posing national, regional, and global security risks. Alice Albright suggests in this article for the Brookings Institution that the situation calls for urgent design of a more efficient and unified global education architecture, supported by champions at the highest level.
