How should we frame and measure inequalities in education?
At the end of last year, the Global Education Monitoring Report (GEM) and the UNESCO Institute for Statistics held a two day workshop on how to frame and measure inequalities in education in the SDG agenda. The result of the workshop was a short consensus outcome statement, which aims to contribute to on-going discussions on measuring and monitoring inequalities in education in the coming decade and beyond. This statement on measuring equity in education aims to contribute to discussions about the monitoring tools and mechanisms needed to ensure that ‘no one is left behind’ as policies and plans for Education 2030 are put into place.
