The Global Education Learning Series

The USAID 2020 Global Education Learning Series, from June-November, created an ongoing system of learning, built relationships and networks across sectors and countries, and shared collective knowledge, evidence, and experience to better support education as a critical part of a country’s journey to self-reliance.

Throughout the Learning Series, participants had the opportunity to join panel discussion webinars, 'Tea w/ a SME' sessions, the EducationLinks discussion forum, the online learning modules, and more. You can still find the past event recordings, resources, Q&A docs, and more for each theme below.

Promoting Equity and Inclusion

Promoting equity and inclusion in education helps to foster a culture of respect and belonging in schools. By creating an environment where everyone is fair to one another, accepting individual differences becomes the norm. This can result in reduced levels of gender-based violence, crime, bullying, and discrimination. Under this Learning Series theme, topics included disability inclusive education, multi-sectoral approaches to girls retention in school and the Evidence for Gender and Education Resource.

Under this Learning Series theme, topics included PSE in practice and education finance.
