Pass or fail: are countries doing their education homework?

WBG/IMF Annual Meetings 2017

More children are attending schools across the world than ever before, but millions cannot read, write or do basic math, even after several years in the classroom. This learning crisis is widening social gaps and failing to deliver on the promise of education for economic growth.

Join leaders and experts at the World Bank as they discuss concrete actions countries can take to mobilize everyone who has a stake in learning and making schools work for all children.

FEATURING:
Sri Mulyani Indrawati, Minister of Finance, Indonesia
Marwan Hamadeh, Minister of Education, Lebanon
Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director of Oxfam International
Claver Gatete, Minister of Finance and Economic Planning, Rwanda
Kristalina Georgieva, Chief Executive Officer, World Bank
Farah Mohamed, Chief Executive Officer, Malala Fund (moderator)

This flagship event is open to all WB/IMF Annual Meetings participants (with an Annual Meetings badge) and Bank/Fund staff on a first-come, first-seated basis.
