Accountability in Education

Launch date: 
Tuesday, 24 October, 2017

The second in the new GEM Report series, the 2017/8 Report, will continue its assessment of progress towards the Sustainable Development Goal on education (SDG 4) and its 10 targets, as well as other related education targets in the SDG agenda.

The Report will also investigate accountability-related issues in education, analyzing how all relevant actors - the international community, government, teachers, schools, parents, students, civil society and businesses - can provide education more effectively, efficiently and equitably and address global commitments to SDG 4. By analyzing which accounting policies and practices are more effective than others, and the political, economic and social conditions that facilitate the effectiveness of accountability mechanisms, the 2017/8 GEM Report will conclude with concrete recommendations for policy makers working in the sector.
