Happy New Year from the GEM Report 

Our wish for 2017 is (predictably) significant progress towards inclusive and equitable quality education, and lifelong learning opportunities for all.

The start of a new year provides an opportunity for us to thank you for your continued engagement with our work over 2016. There were over 100 launch events for our latest Report in 2016, with several more planned in the coming months. These would not have been possible without the support of our partners. For those who missed the activity, the Report, and many of the presentations are available online.

Our latest policy paper and related blog series was released at the end of 2016 and looks at the content of textbooks and how it reflects key concepts in Target 4.7 of the Sustainable Development Goals. The blog series looks at recent textbook reforms in Viet Nam to improve gender equality; how Turkish textbooks could better incorporate ethnic and religious minorities; how Rwanda has worked to cover the 1994 Genocide in textbooks in order to instill ideals of tolerance, unity and reconciliation, among many others.

Related to this paper we have created an activity that can be used by teachers and students to read #BetweenTheLines of their textbooks. For those interested in this topic, join us in a few weeks (16-20 Jan) for a Wikigender discussion, hosted by OECD.
The GEM Report has plenty to look forward to in 2017. Our 2017/8 report due out at the end of the year will look at accountability in education, analyzing how all relevant actors can work together to provide education more effectively, efficiently and equitably. Before then we have a number of policy papers – on School-Related Gender-Based Violence, The Underachievement of Boys, and Higher Education Policy – for you to look forward to.

We wish you the best for 2017 and encourage you to connect with us on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram in order to follow out latest news.
