Young Lives at CIES 2018
Young Lives will be in Mexico City for the 62nd Annual Meeting of the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES). The conference theme is 'Re-Mapping Global Education: South-North Dialogue' which Young Lives is well placed to speak to, drawing on our comparative, longitudinal data of education trajectories across four countries (Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam) and school effectiveness survey findings. Please find details of our involvement in the conference below:
How to use longitudinal education assessment data for secondary analysis Sunday 15 March, 3:00pm - 6:00pm
The workshop will provide a basic training in techniques for longitudinal data analysis using a mixture of theoretical and practical sessions to illustrate concepts. The workshop leads (Caine Rolleston, Rhiannon Moore, Padmini Iyer, Bridget Azubuike and Jack Rossiter) will work with data from large-scale school surveys, drawing on Young Lives’ unique study of childhood poverty, conducted in Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam since 2002.
Unequal Educational Opportunities and Unjust Inequalities of Outcomes: Lessons from Ethiopia, India, Peru, and Vietnam on Equity in Education Wednesday 28 March, 11:30am - 1:00pm
This panel examines the nature of inequality and inequity in learning opportunities and outcomes; alongside their explanations and policy implications; in four diverse low and middle-income countries: Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam. Using Young Lives data, the panellists will bring together analyses which shed light on whether solutions to country-specific issues can be found in the policies of more equal or higher performing countries and opportunities for South-South knowledge exchange.
Individual presentations comprising this panel as follows:
