RESULTS Educational Fund has opened the call for applications for civil society organizations to be part of the 2018 research round of the Right to Education Index (RTEI). RTEI is a global accountability initiative that aims to ensure that all people, no matter where they live, enjoy their right to a quality education. It is a global index built out of the international right to education framework designed to monitor and drive national progress towards its fulfillment.

Partners gather the information required to construct RTEI and use those findings to hold governments accountable to their commitments and increase public and political support towards the realization of the right to education. The core of the partnership is around completing the RTEI Questionnaire and developing country briefs based on the findings. More information on RTEI, including the RTEI 2016 Report and Questionnaire, can be found here. A revised Questionnaire will be used for RTEI 2018 and will be made available to partners ahead of data collection. RESULTS Educational Fund seeks to conduct RTEI in 25 countries in 2018.

Partner Organization Responsibilities

  • Review RTEI Questionnaire, complete RTEI e-course, and attend two-hour remote training to prepare for questionnaire completion.
  • Provide names and contact information of five in-country research organizations or education experts who can act as peer reviewers of the completed questionnaire by February 21.
  • Provide names, contact information, and consent to reach out to Ministry of Education officials by February 21.
  • Submit completed RTEI Questionnaire with supporting sources and documents by April 30.
  • Produce country brief by November 15. The brief should be in the form of a 2-4-page analysis using RTEI findings to highlight the issues most relevant to your country and your organization. The brief should be public in nature for partner use in national advocacy and will be posted on the RESULTS/RTEI website.
  • Complete feedback form documenting challenges faced in completing the RTEI Questionnaire to strengthen the process in future rounds.
