Accelerated Education Programs in Crisis and Conflict
Building Evidence and Learning Literature Review
USAID, with NORC (formerly known as the National Opinion Research Center) at the University of Chicago, produced an important new study, Accelerated Education Programs in Crisis and Conflict: Building Evidence and Learning. This thorough literature review provides insight into a critical global issue: as of 2013, almost 50 million primary and lower secondary-age children have been deprived of an education through the impact of crisis and/or conflict.
AEPs provide an key strategy for providing these children and youth access to basic education that is otherwise denied to them. The review provides insight into 1) the profiles and elements of existing AEPs, 2) the learning outcomes reported by AEPs; 3) critical questions and gaps in the literature, and 4) recommendations for conducting evaluations and research on AEPs.
