Entrepreneurship education and training programs around the world: Dimensions for success

Entrepreneurship has attracted global interest for its potential to catalyze economic and social development. Research suggesting that certain entrepreneurial mindsets and skills can be learned has given rise to the field of entrepreneurship education and training (EET). Despite the growth of EET, global knowledge about these programs and their impact remains thin. In response, this study surveys the available literature and program evaluations to propose a Conceptual Framework for understanding the EET program landscape.

Non-Traditional Financing for Education

Non-traditional financing is nascent and accounts for only a small percentage of current education spending. In terms of what is working, evidence is limited. Some non-traditional financing instruments with a longer history in education, for example cash transfers, vouchers and PPPs have shown signs of success in certain contexts, but there are still many gaps in evidence, especially in Africa. Some have only recently been implemented in education, for example social impact investing and PbR.

How Innovative Is the Education Sector?

Education has one of the highest shares of innovative jobs for tertiary graduates of all sectors of the economy in Europe, and a higher proportion than in other
public sector areas such as health and public administration.

Innovation in knowledge or methods is the most common form of innovation, with education outperforming all sectors of the economy on this measure.

Policy Paper #14: Progress in Getting All Children to School Stalls, but Some Countries Show the Way Forward

This new policy paper shows that global progress in reducing out of school numbers has stagnated leaving 58 million children out of school, with barely any change since 2007. The paper highlights ways to buck the trend, showing that seven policies have helped reduce out of school numbers in very different settings. Seventeen countries reduced their out-of-school populations by almost 90% in little over a decade by investing in positive action such as abolishing school fees, introducing more relevant curricula or providing financial support to struggling families.

The report features the new Race for Results Index, which compares how children are progressing on key milestones across racial and ethnic groups at the national and state levels. The index is based on 12 indicators that measure a child’s success in each stage of life, from birth to adulthood.

Social Exclusion of Children: Developmental Origins of Prejudice

Over the past decade, developmental and social psychological research has explicitly adopted a developmental intergroup framework, integrating social and developmental psychology fields to understand the origins of social exclusion and prejudice. This article argues that a social developmental analysis of how groups and individuals experience, evaluate, and understand exclusion is essential for a complete picture of the human experience, interpretation, and consequences of exclusion.
