This work stream aims to facilitate an improved information environment around private education, including a better understanding of effective learning among parents and schools and the generation of credible and accurate evidence for Lagos policymakers.
The availability of accurate information is fundamental to understanding, planning and improving educational quality. It is a critical element for evidence-based decision-making by education stakeholders. For example, parents need to be well informed and discerning in order to demand quality services from the schools that their children attend. Similarly, schools need guidance on best practices to enable them to use the most effective pedagogy for enhancing learning outcomes. For Government, the scope of information must be varied and rich to enable policy-makers to monitor and reform the education system, and to advocate for quality.
