On January 6, the Center for Universal Education hosted a half-day consultation to develop recommendations for reforming the global education architecture and evolve current financing mechanisms for achieving universal education. The event included representatives from multilateral organizations, including the Education for All-Fast Track Initiative, World Bank and UNICEF, as well as from major foundations working in global education, leading non-governmental organizations, and researchers from Brookings and elsewhere.

David Gartner of the Center for Universal Education moderated the discussion, highlighting the importance of 2010 for achieving the Millennium Development Goal of universal primary education and the unique opportunity to put forward proposals to reshape the current global education architecture. Participants divided into three core discussions groups focused on 1) inclusive governance; 2) accountability for results; and 3) a stronger secretariat to support country-driven processes.
