Education Commission Report Coming Soon

Education Commission Report Coming Soon

The Education Commission is a major global initiative engaging world leaders, policy makers and researchers to develop a compelling investment case and to provide a roadmap to overcome the barriers to lifelong education and learning for all. 

Launched in September of last year, the Education Commission’s findings will be presented to the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the 2016 General Assembly in New York on September 18th   who has agreed to act on the recommendations in the report.

The Commission has three clear objectives:

  1. Bring together the best evidence from around the globe about what works to expand and improve learning opportunities.
  2. Agree on an investment case and agenda for action.
  3. Inspire and persuade leaders – at all levels and sectors – to action
