Learning for All

Primary school enrolment rates exceed 90 percent in many developing countries—getting children into school has been one of the success stories of global development. But many of these children are not learning.  

A growing number of approaches to improve learning are being tried and tested since the global development sector has shifted focus to this global learning crisis—but these rarely reach scale. CGD’s research program seeks to understand what determines the success or failure of methods that aim to improve basic skills for children from all backgrounds.
