Evidence Summit 2022: Concept Note
Improving education sector performance is a key policy priority for the Government of Ghana. The Ministry of Education has, since the inception of the Education Strategic Plan (2018-30), rolled out various policies and major interventions towards achieving effectiveness in education service delivery. To ensure that well-intentioned policy goals and programmes translate into improved learning outcomes, decision-makers and stakeholders are eager to: (1) learn about policies and interventions that have proven to work; and (2) use such evidence and innovative solutions to improve planning and education service delivery.
The Evidence Summit, which forms part of the National Education Week (NEW) 2022, will bring together policymakers, researchers and practitioners to a) share rigorous evidence that has been collected about the impact of policies and interventions in education aimed at improving service delivery and learning outcomes in Ghana; and b) identify ways in which evidence can be used to drive the implementation of education policies and programmes to facilitate better decision-making processes.
