The Ethiopian government’s recent reform package - the General Education Quality Improvement Programme for Equity (GEQIP-E) – seeks to improve learning outcomes and focuses on girls, children with disabilities and children from pastoralist areas. Moreover, GEQIP-E represents a shift from the input-focused approach to one centred on performance in 4 key areas: quality, efficiency, equity and capacity development.
We explore the role of data and information within the education system in Ethiopia to help answer the question of why learning outcomes are still very low and whether (and how) improved data availability and quality will support the success of GEQIP-E.
