#Makeitpublic: Campaign to Drive Education Monitoring

International Policy

France: The Global Education Monitoring Report has launched #MakeitPublic, a new advocacy calling on governments and regional organisations to report on education progress with regard to their citizens. The #MakeitPublic campaign urges countries to take steps towards producing a regular education monitoring report that would capture progress on education commitments, including those on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 across all education levels, and government education expenditure. 

This initiative is aligned to a core recommendationfrom the 2017-18 Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report. The GEM Report’s campaign also calls on all governments to: a) Make education monitoring reports publicly available to their citizens; b) Use their national education monitoring reports as key sources for the education section of their SDG national voluntary reviews; and, c) All regional organisations with an education agenda should also produce regional education monitoring reports, based on their regional education strategies and monitoring frameworks.
