School Improvement Research Consultancy 2014+

Project Lead: Stephen Anderson and Karen Mundy, January –June 2014

This consultancy was carried out under contract for the Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC)  to assist the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) with consolidating thinking around school improvement in the context of the AKDN’s experience and work. This assignment involved a review and consolidation of the AKDN’s experience to date in school improvement in Africa and Asia; a summary of relevant international research on school improvement; and planning and facilitating a one-day meeting that brought together relevant AKDN staff with thought leaders in this area to share information on the state of the knowledge on school improvement and to map out potential areas for future focus and amplified impact.  The invited external scholars included Andy Hargreaves (Boston College), Penny Sebring (University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research); and Luis Crouch (RTI International).  A final discussion paper entitled “School Improvement in Developing Countries: A Synthesis of Experiences and Lessons Learned” by Professors Anderson and Mundy was submitted in September 2014.  Professor Anderson participated in a panel discussion based on the major themes and findings of the discussion paper organized by AKFC in Ottawa (February 12, 2015)  for Canadian international development agencies involved in school improvement  work in developing countries.
