POLICY BRIEFS: Strengthening the Education for All – Fast Track Initiative
|(Center for Universal Education (CUE) at Brookings)
The attainment of Education for All, a Millennium Development Goal, is still far from reality. This week, the Education for All – Fast Track Initiative (FTI) Board of Directors is meeting in a special retreat in Paris to discuss important reforms that have the potential to create a more effective global education aid mechanism.
In coordination with this, the Center for Universal Education (CUE) at Brookings prepared three new policy pieces that seek to help guide the discussions at the meeting this week, particularly around strengthening FTI’s country-driven approach and its financing of fragile and conflict-affected states.
1) Education’s Hardest Test: Scaling up Aid in Fragile and Conflict-Affected States, co-authored with CfBT Education Trust-UK.
2) Financing for All: How to Include Fragile and Conflict-Affected States in the Education FTI, co-authored with CfBT Education Trust-UK.
3) Many Paths to Universal Primary Education: Time to Replace the Indicative Framework with a Real Country-Driven Approach, co-authored with Steven Klees, University of Maryland-US.
