A Bleak Picture for Children’s Education in the Arab World

Hafez Ghanem, Liesbet Steer, and Fred Dews

“More than half of Arab children are not learning,” says Senior Fellow Hafez Ghanem in this new podcast about learning in the Arab world. He joined Liesbet Steer, a fellow also with the Center for Universal Education at Brookings, in this discussion about their findings on and solutions for a range of education issues in the region, including number and quality of teachers, accountability, gender, curriculum, and whether Arab world children are learning the skills they need to compete in the 21st century.
