Help us share this video. If we fail to act, by , half a generation of young people will not be learning. This situation can be reversed. We propose four transformations. Performance Reform education systems to deliver results How? Our Recommendations The primary measure of educational performance should be whether children are learning. What is being done?
What is being done Country-led Breakthroughs We started the Pioneer Country Initiative to help national governments accelerate successful education reforms and to inspire other countries to increase investments in quality education. To date: Heads of state, government and ministers from more than 20 African, Latin American and Southeast Asian countries endorsed the Learning Generation findings and are working to implement its recommendations. Four countries — Ethiopia, Ghana, Tunisia, and Uganda — are taking the lead and ready to implement change.

3 Generation Education
Our Recommendations More and better financing for education is needed to make sure that all children benefit from free quality education from pre-primary to secondary levels. We are designing the Facility in consultation with development banks, civil society, and prospective donor and partner countries. More than 30 international organizations and , individuals worldwide have already endorsed the creation of the Facility. The G20 Leaders Declaration acknowledged the recommendation to establish the Facility and committed to advancing this proposal.

Country Spotlight: Syria. Country Spotlight: Syria Roughly 1 million Syrian refugee children are out of school. Innovation Invest in solutions that ensure learning How? Our Recommendations Faced with escalating demands and constrained resources, education must transform if it is to prepare young people for life in and beyond. This working group: Brings educators, policymakers and researchers together to develop proposals for the redesign of professional roles within education. Country Spotlight: Singapore. Country Spotlight: Singapore Singapore supports educators through mentoring programs that connect new teachers with experienced teachers and school leaders.
Inclusion Focus on youth at risk of not learning How? If current trends continue, by — the date the international community has set for attaining quality secondary education for all — less than 10 percent of young people in low-income countries will be on track to gain basic secondary level skills.
The costs of this learning crisis — unemployment, poverty, inequality and instability — could undermine the very fabric of our economies and societies. But there is a better vision for the future of global education and young people. Indeed, it is possible to ensure that all children and youth are in school and learning the skills they need to be successful in work and life.
This report proposes the largest expansion of educational opportunity in history and outlines the reforms and increased financial investment required to achieve it. Young people in developing countries will face the greatest challenges in the years ahead.
In the past, many developing economies achieved growth by moving farm workers into factories. In the future, new growth models will need to be found, but these will require higher levels of skills than developing economies are currently set to offer. Changing global demographics will exacerbate this challenge with the greatest population increases occurring in countries currently lagging furthest behind in education.
By , African countries will be home to a billion young people. If education in much of the world fails to keep up with the rising demand for skills, there will be major shortages of skilled workers in both developing and developed economies as well as large surpluses of workers with poor skills. This skills gap threatens to have far-reaching economic, social, and political repercussions.
The growing skills gap will stunt global economic growth and reverse progress toward ending extreme poverty. Without action to give young people the education and skills they need to compete, more than a quarter of the population in low-income countries could still be living in extreme poverty in Projections suggest that by , the number of lives lost each year because of a failure to provide adequate access to quality education would equal those lost today to HIV and malaria, two of the most deadly global diseases. By , population growth would be at least 15 percent higher than if all children were learning — a critical factor in development as a whole.
If inequality in education persists, the implications for global stability are also dire.

Historical analysis shows that inequality fuels unrest and when educational inequality doubles, the probability of conflict more than doubles. Unrest is likely to be greatest where the gap between youth expectations and daily realities is widest. A 20th century education emphasised compliance and conformity over creativity, two skills that were necessary to do well in a professional or corporate environment and to hold down a good job for decades.

Compliance and conformity are now a relic, but they are still key values in many schools, informing policy even when not being expressly promoted to students. Students with broader interests are discouraged, not rewarded. The system results in a population with similar skills in a narrow spectrum of talents. Unfortunately, most students continue to be educated in the same way as they were in the past, being taught a standardised curriculum through rote learning and individualised testing, at a one-size-fits-all pace. Far too many students are struggling to learn because they are disengaged and lack motivation.
Why go to school when you could learn the same information faster by watching a Youtube video or playing a computer game? Why memorise facts for a test when you have all the information in the palm of your hand anyway? Schools are failing to teach students to respond to rapid change and how to handle new information because they are clinging to obsolete methods. Growing up with this level of technology means growing up with a completely unprecedented amount of information at your fingertips.
There are kids who have never been more than a few seconds away from the answers to their questions, with everything just a quick search away. They are able to teach themselves about any topic they are interested in without even leaving their bedroom. The current cohort of students come from Generation Z and Generation Alpha. These two generations have grown up with advanced technology as a given in their homes and classrooms.
They are digital natives, as comfortable using apps and code as their grandparents were flipping pages. Generations Z and Alpha are also the most internationally connected in history. They encounter people online from all over the world, and can easily make friends on the other side of the planet before they have even left their home state. Schools and parents are also increasingly offering children and young people the opportunity to travel, creating a truly borderless experience of learning. The students in our schools today are intelligent, independent and extremely capable.
They are skilled with technology and comfortable with global and intercultural communication. We can expect that future generations are going to have even more experience in these areas.
A 21st century education is about giving students the skills they need to succeed in this new world, and helping them grow the confidence to practice those skills. With so much information readily available to them, 21st century skills focus more on making sense of that information, sharing and using it in smart ways. These four themes are not to be understood as units or even subjects, but as themes that should be overlaid across all curriculum mapping and strategic planning.
They should be part of every lesson in the same way as literacy and numeracy. Creativity is about thinking through information in new ways, making new connections and coming up with innovative solutions to problems.
