There is growing recognition and consensus that the world is in a “learning crisis.” The RISE programme is driven by the goal of solid, evidence-based, practical answers to hard questions about how to reform existing education systems to improve learning outcomes.
The RISE programme aims to understand how school systems in the developing world can overcome the learning crisis. Education systems are complicated puzzles to define - they include policies, institutions, and actors, their contexts and their interactions.
The RISE programme will support, facilitate, synthesise and harness education systems research to achieve the goal of accelerating learning for all. Find out more about what is expected of research proposals in terms of the scale, scope and focus.
