Brookings Paper Discusses Role of Education in Post-2105 Agenda

December 2012: A new paper, titled "The Education Link: Why Learning is Central to the Post-2015 Global Development Agenda," discusses the role of education in the post-2015 global development agenda.

The paper, authored by Anda Adams and published as a working paper by the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution, describes the leading frameworks proposed for the post-2015 global development agenda and highlights how education and learning fit within each of those frameworks. It aims to ensure that education will fit within the agreed-upon overarching organizing framework.

The seven potential frameworks addressed in the paper are: Ending Absolute Poverty; Equity and Inclusion; Economic Growth and Jobs; Getting to Zero; Global Minimum Entitlements; Sustainable Development; and Well-Being and Quality of Life.

The paper concludes that education is an essential ingredient for development, and regardless of the global development framework adopted, quality education and opportunities for learning will have a significant role to play in achieving global development goals. [Publication: The Education Link: Why Learning is Central to the Post-2015 Global Development Agenda]
