Brookings

For The Learning Metrics Task Force

Overview
In July 2012, the Center for Universal Education at Brookings launched the Learning Metrics Task Force to shift global attention to learning by better measurement tools and data. With this grant, the Center for Universal Education would complete the technical work on global learning indicators and support a group of fifteen champion countries to adopt them. In addition, a new program, based on a model developed in Australia called "My School", would develop and test approaches to publicizing information about how much funding schools receive and how well they are performing in terms of children’s learning.
