Lanre Akinola, This is Africa: Despite growth in Africa over the past decade, the Africa Learning Barometer is a wake-up call. We need to act on the data now to improve education; otherwise we'll wake up a 15-20 years from now and ask, "what went wrong?"
On September 17, 2012, the Center for Universal Education at Brookings (CUE) hosted the launch of the "Africa Learning Barometer"—a collaboration between CUE and This is Africa. The barometer is the first region-wide assessment and online interactive tool examining the state of learning in Africa. The program began with introductory remarks from Senior Fellow and CUE Director Rebecca Winthrop, followed by a short presentation by Brookings Fellow Justin van Fleet on the data and trends from the barometer. Afterwards, a panel discussed the implications for business and development in Africa. Learn more about the event and the Africa Learning Barometer at: http://goo.gl/neltt
