Mwangi Kimenyi: More Focus Needed on Quality of Education

Mwangi Kimenyi: There is a political economy problem in Africa when it comes to the delivery of education services: there's great focus on the number of children who are going to school, but less so on the quality of education they are receiving. On September 17, 2012, the Center for Universal Education at Brookings (CUE) hosted the launch of the "Africa Learning Barometer"—a collaboration between CUE and This is Africa. The barometer is the first region-wide assessment and online interactive tool examining the state of learning in Africa. The program began with introductory remarks from Senior Fellow and CUE Director Rebecca Winthrop, followed by a short presentation by Brookings Fellow Justin van Fleet on the data and trends from the barometer. Afterwards, a panel discussed the implications for business and development in Africa. Learn more about the event and the Africa Learning Barometer at: http://goo.gl/neltt
