Education is key to economic development and wellbeing. But education outcomes remain below expectations in many settings, particularly in low and middle-income countries. Studies over the last decade indicate that poor and inefficient governance plays a major role. While problems such as low teacher effort, teacher absenteeism and leakage of public funds are increasingly recognised, addressing these issues remains a challenge. This conference will bring together researchers and practitioners working in the field of education, as well as experts from other sectors, to discuss how governance can be improved to deliver better educational outcomes.
