Titled, LEARNING to Realize Education’s Promise, the World Development Report 2018 (WDR 2018) comes at a time when education systems around the world face so many challenges due to rapid economic and social change. Aspects of the Bank’s analyses and recommendations have been strongly critiqued in a report by Education International which includes leading global figures such as Keith Lewin. The keynote speaker in this session is Dennis Sinyolo of Education International and he will present his organisation’s views/critique of the World Bank publication.
