    Girls' Secondary Education in Developing Countries

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Brookings Institution’s Center for Universal Education (CUE) works to develop and disseminate effective solutions to the many challenges that prevent children in developing countries from accessing universal quality education. The center provides a forum for on-going policy debates, independent research, and dialogue that works to highlight and advance the global education agenda.  The proposed grant builds on two previous grants to CUE, which supported efforts to develop the Global Compact on Learning, a common policy agenda that promotes quality learning for all, at the early childhood, primary, and post-primary levels. This next phase of work will focus on the institutionalization and tracking of implementation of the Global Compact on Learning agenda at the highest levels.
