On April 20, 2017, Teach For All and the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution co-hosted a roundtable following the recommendation included in the Education Commission’s Learning Generation report, which calls for more concerted support and investment in a global education ecosystem. The roundtable gathered over 40 experts from global civil society organizations, social enterprises, bilateral and multilateral organizations, corporations, global philanthropies, research organizations, and think tanks, including Stavros N. Yiannouka, the CEO of the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) and Dzingai Mutumbuka, former Chair of the Association for Education Development in Africa (ADEA) and former Minister of Education in Zimbabwe, in Washington D.C..
During the discussion, participants explored how a global ecosystem has led change in the health sector, discussed key opportunities and challenges for global education, and collectively identified actions to move the Learning Generation report recommendation forward.
Teach For All looks forward to continuing to collaborate on these actions as the global education sector works toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 4 of ensuring inclusive and quality education for all by 2030. With this strengthened foundation, we hope that collectively we can advocate for increased investment in education, allocate funding more efficiently, and create an environment that encourages sharing best practices across borders.
