Basic Education Coalition (BEC) members are following the recommendations of the World Bank's 2018 World Development Report to strengthen and diversify the education workforce. BEC was pleased to engage in dialogue about lessons learned with a panel at the World Bank's Civil Society Policy Forum (CSPF) on April 18th. The panel highlighted the work of one BEC's board member organizations, Teach For All. Enseña por México and Enseña Chile, partners in Teach For All’s network, discussed their work to develop the collective leadership necessary to ensure all children have the opportunity to achieve their potential. These CSOs develop current teaching participants’ and alumni’s capacity to work within and beyond the classroom, and with other actors, to collectively address systemic issues and catalyze progress towards SDG 4.  

The session described these organizations' shared theory of change and their proven impact. Enseña por México and Enseña Chile described a series of evaluations funded by the World Bank’s Development Grant Facility. Collectively, these evaluations showed evidence of positive impact on student outcomes, and on participants’ and alumni’s opinions regarding policies affecting educational opportunities.
