Overview: The Education Equity Research Initiative (henceforth referred to as the Equity Initiative) is a collaborative partnership of international development and research organizations committed to strengthening the global evidence base around education equity. One of the key objectives of this partnership is to improve the availability, quality, and consistency of data on equity in education. We seek to move away from a “one size fits all” approach in educational development towards a better, more in-depth understanding of how various policy and program interventions affect the learning trajectories and outcomes of all children and youth. In the spirit of this collaboration, the following recommendations are put forward as a means to consolidate current best practices in data collection in education and to chart a way forward together.
