Our Work

In 2018, the Education Commission continues to disseminate The Learning Generation report and agenda for action, inspire and motivate reforms in the financing and delivery of education, and structure partnerships to carry forward its recommendations.

During this phase of work, the Commission is focused on the following priorities:

International Finance Facility


The Commission is collaborating with countries, multilateral development banks, and partners around the world to mobilize more and better investment in education. The International Finance Facility for Education (IFFEd) is an innovative proposal for education financing that could unlock US $10 billion of new funding in its initial phase, making it possible to get every child in school and learning.

Education Workforce Initiative

An education workforce for the future

Through the Education Workforce Initiative, the Commission is working with partners to rethink the education workforce. A new research program will identify innovative ways teachers, support staff, district leaders, and others can equip students with adaptable skills for the 21st century.

Delivery Initiative

More effective education delivery

Governments around the world are leveraging ‘delivery approaches’ to make rapid progress on results-driven education reform plans, but there is a dearth of peer-reviewed research on these approaches. Through a new research program, the Commission is building evidence, improving understanding, and generating policy recommendations on delivery approaches so countries can deliver better and faster education results.
