Frame of Image earn and adapt throughout their lives. The World Bank recently released the World Development Report 2018: Learning to Realize Education’s Promise.

And it’s not just low-income countries: skills in many middle-income countries lag far behind what those countries aspire to.

Abstract

Education has long been critical to human welfare, but it is even more so in a time of rapid economic and social change. The best way to equip children and youth for an uncertain future is to give them strong foundational skills that will allow them to learn and adapt throughout their lives.
The World Bank recently released the World Development Report 2018: Learning to Realize Education’s Promise. Each year, the WDR features a topic of central importance to global development. The 2018 edition, which is the 40th in the series, is the first ever devoted entirely to education.
Despite massive global gains in access to education, recent learning assessments reveal that many children around the world are leaving school unequipped with even foundational literacy and numeracy skills, let alone higher-order 21st-century skills. And it’s not just low-income countries: skills in many middle-income countries lag far behind what those countries aspire to. The report uses new data to diagnose what’s causing this learning crisis and how to tackle it. The solution starts with learning metrics and evidence-based programs to make schools work for learners, but that won’t be enough: countries must also overcome stubborn system-level technical and political barriers to learning. This means deploying salient metrics for mobilizing actors and tracking progress, building coalitions for learning, and taking an adaptive approach to reform.
