Podcast #77: Putting learning at the centre of education
- 69 Posts
Recent data show that progress towards universal primary education has slowed, with the poorest and most marginalized children affected most. According to the most recent estimates, about 250 million children of primary school age cannot read, write or count well, whether or not they have been to school.
Why are some education systems failing to transform the lives of children and equip them with the right skills for the future?
In this latest instalment of the 'Beyond School Books' series, podcast moderator Shia Levitt talks to UNICEF Education Senior Adviser Changu Mannathoko and Rukmini Banerji, Director of Programs at Pratham Institute and one of the co-chairs of the Learning Metrics Task Force, a project that aims to shift the global conversation on education from a focus on access to a focus on access plus learning.
