Getting to Equal in Education
Date: 11 April 2012 (9 am - 5 pm)
Place: Washington DC
"Be mindful of the post-2015 agenda".
This was Amina Az-Zubair’s closing message of her keynote address at the recent World Bank Colloquium, Getting to Equal in Education: Addressing Multiple Sources of Disadvantage to Achieve Learning. With much of the focus on the 2015 deadline of the MDGs, Az-Zubair raised an important and often overlooked point: what happens after 2015?
This colloquium brought together leading researchers, thinkers from the public and private sectors, and practitioners to discuss interventions that help address multiple sources of educational disadvantage, with a focus on gender.
