Growing up in Ethiopia and Vietnam: Evidence in Action for Education

Irish Aid, 15 Hatch Street, Dublin 2
Caine Rolleston

Lead Education Researcher, Caine Rolleston and Jack Rossiter (Education Research Officer in Ethiopia) will be presenting at a lunchtime seminar hosted by Irish Aid on 10 June 2016.

Young Lives has been following the lives of 12,000 children in Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam since 2002. Almost all children in Ethiopia and Vietnam now have access to school, with high hopes for their education. The relatively poor quality of many schools in Ethiopia, however, tends to limit achievement and reinforce inequalities, while in Vietnam, high levels of achievement are relatively equitably distributed. Our insights into early education, education systems and learning outcomes provide valuable evidence for those working towards the sustainable development goal of inclusive and quality education for all.
