School effectiveness in Ethiopia, India and Vietnam: Launch of Key findings from the 2016-17 Young Lives School Survey
In 2016-17, Young Lives conducted school effectiveness surveys to examine the quality of learning outcomes at upper primary and secondary level in Ethiopia, India and Vietnam. At this event, the Young Lives Education team will share key findings on the variation in learning achievement within and between countries, and on the ‘value-added’ by different schools and school types in these countries. Particular attention will be given to cross-country findings on quality learning, enabled by the development of learning metrics designed to be both contextually relevant and internationally comparable. Initial findings from Young Lives’ most recent school survey in Peru, conducted in 2017, will also be presented.
Using unique evidence from the Young Lives school surveys, this event offers a space to discuss and debate key issues in global education, including the development of global learning metrics, addressing inequalities within education systems, the assessment of ‘21st century skills’ in low and middle-income countries, and the privatisation of education.
The event will be chaired by Professor Pauline Rose, director of the REAL Centre, and the discussant will be Lucy Crehan, consultant at Education Development Trust and author of ‘Cleverlands’. It will take place the day before the 2017 UKFIET conference on Learning and Teaching for Sustainable Development at New College, Holywell Street, Oxford, OX1 3BN.
