Knowledge exchange and World Bank policy

Abstract:

This portion of the panel focuses on the research component of the World Bank Education Sector Strategy 2020. The first section will assess the evidence used to justify the Strategy. At present, the Strategy draws only modestly from major (often Bank funded) randomized evaluations of school-based health provision, anti-corruption initiatives, and teacher incentive programs. As a result, there is very little mention of the policy lessons that have been learnt. Furthermore, the Strategy remains ambiguous about the nature of newer interventions such as public-private partnerships, school accountability systems, information provision systems, and incentive systems. The Strategy will be of limited use unless it documents the lessons from earlier evaluations and has a clear sense of the design aspects of newer interventions. The next section of the presentation will discuss research questions that will be of interest to the Bank in the near future. The motivation for this section comes from the lack of knowledge exchange between the World Bank and CIES. As the References section of the Strategy shows, leading comparative education journals such as Comparative Education Review, International Journal of Educational Development, International Review of Education, Compare, and Oxford Review of Education have had a negligible influence on the development the Strategy. Possible research topics (e.g. conditional cash transfers, teacher training policies) and methodological approaches will be discussed. Young scholars are the primary targets of this section of the presentation.
