This blog is hosted by the team working on the Global Education Monitoring Report (GEM Report), an editorially independent, authoritative and evidence-based annual report published by UNESCO. Its mandate is to monitor progress towards the education targets in the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework.

The GEM Report is a singular, comprehensive, analytical and authoritative reference for reviewing and advancing the global follow-up and review of education. With 12 reports produced since 2002, the Report has acquired extensive experience in monitoring and policy analysis and a global reputation for excellence, covering themes ranging from inequality, gender and teaching and learning to conflict, literacy and early childhood care and education.

We aim to raise fundamental questions about global education,  especially on the particular themes of our annual report. We intend this blog to be a discussion forum for everyone interested in promoting the right to quality learning. We welcome comments on blog posts. (We do, however, retain the right to remove any comment we judge to be objectionable.)
