The International Working Group on Education (IWGE) is an informal network of aid agencies and foundations. Since its inception in 1972 it has provided a forum for donor agencies to exchange information and work closely together on education issues. The IWGE is guided by a Planning Committee, whose members are the Aga Khan Foundation, GIZ, Sida, UNESCO, UNICEF, USAID and the World Bank. Its Secretariat, the International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP), coordinates the Group’s activities.

The 2012 IWGE meeting took place in Washington DC and was hosted by the World Bank. There were 70 participants including representatives from agencies and organizations, as well as eminent scholars who were invited to speak on various topics related to the theme of the meeting – ‘From Schooling to Learning’.

IIEP has now published a summary of the presentations, discussions and subsequent recommendations of the meeting. It highlights some of the trends in the deliberations and possible areas for active engagement by national educational authorities for accelerated student learning. The electronic edition can be downloaded from the website.
