Right to Education Index

The Right to Education Index (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. RTEI works with civil society, research institutions, and governments to drive accountability and progress towards the right to education through a global index built out of the international right to education framework.
