There is a learning crisis in developing countries: most children now attend school, but many are not learning basic skills. CGD led a global initiative called Research on Improving Systems of Education (RISE) focusing on governance, accountability, information, financing, management, and the politics of reform. RISE was a partnership with Oxford Policy Management and the Blavatnik School of Government at Oxford University, with funding from the UK Department for International Development and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
