Incentives and Accountability in Education: A Review
In 2011, USAID issued a new four-year education strategy to ensure that investments are coordinated to achieve measurable and sustainable educational outcomes. To this end, USAID selected three strategic goals:
• Goal 1: Improved reading skills for 100 million children in primary grades by 2015;
• Goal 2: Improved ability of tertiary and workforce development programs to produce a workforce with relevant skills to support country development goals by 2015; and
• Goal 3: Increased equitable access to education in crisis and conflict environments for 15 million learners by 2015.
