American Economic Review

However, there is still a need for more and better data to identify the groups most deprived of education in different societies. With the deadline for the six Education for All goals closing in, the world is unlikely to meet the goals. An important reason for this failure is that not enough attention has been given to those who are marginalized. Education goals set after 2015 must include equity-based targets. Improving available data for measuring marginalization in education should therefore remain a high priority for the post 2015 agenda.

For now, our hope is that WIDE will make a visual impact highlighting the extent of disadvantage that policymakers can no longer ignore. From governments to activists, you can use WIDE to identify the problems countries are facing in promoting equitable access to education, and act on that information to promote Education for All.
