UNESCO just launched the new Handbook on Measuring Equity in Education. It explains and guides how to measure if marginalised groups are not left behind in education.

Persons with disabilities are one of the groups at risk of exclusion from education. But many countries don’t track data on education progress of persons with disabilities. Education progress is vital to ensure no one is left behind. Having this data, national policymakers can create solutions to these challenges. These solutions are essential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal 4 – Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.

The Handbook is produced by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), the FHI 360 Education Policy Data Centre, Oxford Policy Management and the Research for Equitable Access and Learning (REAL) Centre at the University of Cambridge.
