Toward Universal Learning - New Recommendations 


Global task force calls for action to ensure the world’s children are learning


As the debate intensifies over the post-2015 global development agenda, a new report from the Learning Metrics Task Force  lays out a framework to put learning on the agenda and to track learning among the world’s children and youth in order to achieve quality education for all.


The new report, Toward Universal Learning: Recommendations from the Learning Metrics Task Force, presents key indicators to track learning at the global level and monitor progress in foundational skills, such as literacy and numeracy.


The report also calls for new global indicators including a “learning for all” indicator that would combine measures of education access, completion and reading into one statistic.


“Learning serves as the foundation for all of the priorities in the run-up to 2015 -- from better livelihoods to climate change. So it is critical to identify a clear set of indicators that can be tracked globally in order to monitor progress and hold ourselves to account in improving the learning outcomes and opportunities of all children and youth,” says UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova.


“As highlighted by the task force, data alone will not solve the problem. But reliable data does empower us to better target policies and resources required to deliver on the promise of education," she added. 


Jointly released by the UIS and the Centre for Universal Learning  at Brookings, the report is based on recommendations from technical working groups and input from broad global consultations.
