Faced with a global education and learning crisis - where knowledge about effective policies and practices to address the crisis are insufficiently communicated, adopted and used - Education.org is an independent, non-profit initiative, dedicated to bringing the best available evidence to education leaders around the world. We aim to improve the learning of every child and young person by helping those leaders access and use the best, most applicable evidence in their decision making.
We want to be a ‘constructive disruptor’, shaking up the status quo and challenging conventional thinking and approaches. Since we began our work in 2020, Education.org has focused on establishing the exact needs of education leaders; devised the key components of an ‘Education Knowledge Bridge’ that must be constructed to meet their needs; and refined our own methods of evidence synthesis to provide the highest-quality guidance for those leaders.
As a result of this work, we are already seeing clear and concrete results from governments using our evidence and tools. By early 2023 we have forged official partnerships with the Ministries of Education in Kenya and Sierra Leone, and are exploring similar agreements with other African countries. Education leaders tell us they value Education.org’s practical problem-solving focus, tailored to their challenges, as well as our team’s painstaking process to analyse unpublished material ripe with meaning.
