What Matters Most for Educational Resilience
A framework paper
ERA stresses the central role of education systems to understand the risks faced by children and youth, to protect the assets and opportunities inherent in education communities, and to provide the school and educational supports to help students navigate the difficult environments in which they live. This paper presents the tools developed under the World Bank's Education Resilience Approaches (ERA) program and several key principles that guide the application of a resilience process. The tool offer a systematic process to improve education system alignment to a resilience-based approach and ensure relevant quality education services for learners affected by difficult contexts, especially conflict and violence. The annexes provide more detail on how the tools can help align education strategies, plans and services in the area of access, learning quality, equity, capacity building and participation, amongst other education goals.
