Recent nationwide learning assessments (Uwezo, 2013) have documented the low levels of learning in Tanzanian schools. Low levels of learning are driven in part by limited accountability in the education system, which is reflected in the frequent absence of teachers from schools.
It’s officially post-2015 – the moment we have been discussing for quite some time. Over the past few years, the international education community, civil society orgs, teachers, agencies and donors have worked vigorously to create a new ambitious and comprehensive set of education targets that are unprecedented in scope.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of volunteers in South Asia and East Africa walk many miles crossing rivers, mountains, deserts and farmlands to do something amazing: reach remote rural communities to assess whether children can read or do simple maths.
It is now officially ‘post-2015’ and a new set of international goals and targets are in place. The GEM Report has changed its name and logo in order to reflect its new mandate to monitor international education targets until 2030.
