WATCH: Pathways for scaling up quality education in developing countries


The recent study, Millions Learning: Scaling up quality education in developing countries, tells the story of where and how quality education has scaled in low- and middle-income countries. The story emerges from wide-ranging research on scaling and learning, including 14 in-depth case studies from around the globe. In the study, we use the term “scaling” to represent a range of pathways that expand and deepen effective approaches that help ensure that millions of children are learning.

In celebration of National Crayon Day, we build on our first video, in which we used crayons to introduce the research focus of Millions Learning. This second video demonstrates the different pathways for scaling up impact. We will release a third video in the coming months that will discuss the 14 underlying factors, or core ingredients, that contribute to scaling up quality education.
