Spotlight on

Learning at the bottom of the pyramids

Dan Wagner

Poor and marginalized communities are often excluded from quality education and lifelong learning opportunities. Even though major efforts have been made over recent decades, too many children are left out of school, in particular in low- and middle-income countries. Equity can be improved and overall national levels of learning can increase, however, provided more attention is given to those at the lower end of the social pyramid and to education inequalities within countries. Featuring essays and commentaries from 36 international experts, this book is meant for those seeking to understand the science of learning in low-resource settings worldwide. It looks at how to measure learning in marginalized populations and discusses ways in which new policy approaches can improve learning for all.
