Education Systems Reform
Working collaboratively with Ministries of Education, development agencies, and donors, AIR is coordinating educational improvement reforms.
Our work supports effective policy dialogue and financing, and strengthens policies and systems for teacher training, school health and nutrition, literacy programs and inclusive strategies for learners with disabilities.
We build the ability of education officials and institutions to improve their use of data and information to make decisions, enhance curriculum development and assessment, facilitate changes in public policy, increase enrollment of girls and other neglected groups, and promote the use of technology in education.
