Education

Young Lives children are now almost all enrolled in school, and have high hopes for their education, but their aspirations are being undermined by the poor quality of many schools, which too often works to reinforce existing inequalities.

Inclusive and equitable quality education for all has been a core focus of study for the Young Lives team. Our insights into early education, low-cost private education and education systems provide valuable information for those working towards this sustainable development goal. We have been exploring these areas through school surveys in each of our study countries. These surveys allow us to understand more about the school experiences of Young Lives children, and provide insight into the factors which contribute to learning and progress.
