Right to Education Index 2016 Report Launch
May 31, 2017
RESULTS Educational Fund is pleased to announce the launch of the Right to Education Index (RTEI) 2016 Report on June 20, 2017.
RTEI is a global accountability initiative with biennial data collection and advocacy. In 2016, 15 civil society partners in 15 countries collected data about their national education systems by completing the RTEI Questionnaire. Questionnaire responses were coded, summarized, and analyzed in the Index and in cross-national findings. The 2016 report is the cumulative effort of civil society partners, peer reviewers, government officials, RESULTS Affiliates, and RESULTS Educational Fund.
RESULTS Educational Fund and the Global Campaign for Education-US (GCE-US) will launch the RTEI 2016 report following the next GCE-US coalition meeting on June 20,2017. The event will begin with the monthly GCE coalition meeting from 12:30 to 1:20, followed by a short break for food and then presentations about the right to education in the U.S. The event will highlight the right to education in the U.S. with presentations from RESULTS Educational Fund and GCE-US researchers.
