Education and Youth Empowerment

Signature Issue

Our priority area is understanding how to make Africa’s education systems more inclusive and equitable. We will seek to consolidate evidence on access to schooling and quality of learning among marginalized populations and explore the influences of management and administrative practices in schools.

This includes developing and evaluating interventions and instructional approaches for improving quality and learning outcomes.

OVERVIEW

The Center is one of a handful of institutions conducting research on education in sub-Saharan Africa. We make substantive contributions to understanding barriers to schooling, quality in teaching, and measurement of learning outcomes – especially among poor and marginalized populations in both urban and rural East and West Africa.

Our approach to education is to generate evidence that will promote stronger and more inclusive education systems across Africa. This is because gaps remain in understanding the role of quality education in meeting the development challenges confronting sub-Saharan Africa, and the extent to which education, vocational training, and skills building can contribute to substantive and quality human capital to deliver on the promise of a demographic dividend.
