Education is a fundamental right for everyone and key to the future of any country. Education has its price everywhere—but the only thing more expensive than investing in education is not investing in education. Inadequate education produces high costs for society in terms of public spending, crime, health, and economic growth. No country can afford to leave too many of its children behind and not to help them achieve the competencies needed for a self-fulfilled life in economic independence.

Bring together efforts from governments, schools, the private sector and civil society to initiate education initiatives and learn from promising education initiatives worldwide.

Reforming education to overcome inequality is not just an issue for government. A well-designed and functional education system is crucial for sustainable economic development and requires efforts from government, schools, the private sector, and civil society.

Learning from promising private initiatives and taking region-specific characteristics into consideration may help to identify the suitable way for different regions to cope with problems of inequality.
