Julie Cram, USAID’s Senior Coordinator of US International Basic Education Assistance, spoke with the ECCN Steering Group to gather views about what the U.S. Government’s priorities should be for the international basic education strategy, particularly from the perspective of education in crisis and conflict. Now, Julie Cram and her team are eager to gather input from the ECCN community.
We invite you to share your views. In particular we encourage members to be as specific as possible, and give examples to illustrate your input.
- What are the high-level education outcomes that are most important for children and youth living in crisis-affected contexts?
- If the US government were to focus its investments on those outcomes, what medium-term outcomes should we invest in?
- What are the two biggest challenges you face in trying to achieve those educational outcomes for children and young people?
- Finally, across the US government, what opportunities exist to leverage various agencies’ comparative strengths for improved education outcomes in crisis and conflict regions?
Submit your contributions anonymously or under a name and/or organization by May 13, 2018.
ECCN will compile all the input and share it with Julie Cram’s team.
