More than ever before, there is need for evidence-based planning, implementation and decision making in the education sector to achieve the ambitious target of learning for all children in Kenya. To that end, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) in partnership with the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC), Innovation for Poverty Action (IPA), Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD), RTI International, Twaweza, and the Women Education Researchers of Kenya (WERK), is organizing the Education Evidence for Action Conference to be held December 2-3, 2015 at the Merica Hotel in Nakuru, Kenya.
The Education Evidence for Action Conference organizers believe that the ambitious targets of driving national education interventions, reforming the curriculum, implementing the National Education Sector Plan (NESP) and edging towards inclusive and equitable quality learning demands a sustained conversation of actors and building a community of evidence and practice. Subsequently, the MoEST will partner with education research evidence providers in Kenya to host a national evidence dissemination event.
We welcome all educators, policymakers, researchers, and other stakeholders to join the conversation to drive research to reality.
