Until January 30, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) invites you to vote on the next education indicators.

UNESCO's education indicators are those used by the organization to measure progress in education, check whether development targets have been met and make comparisons between different regions of the world and different countries. The current indicators, valid until 2015, expire and new ones have been developed. These will come into force from 2016.

After numerous consultations with several bodies of the world of education coming from all around the planet, theInstitute of Statistics of UNESCO invites individuals to pronounce on the relevance of the indicators selected to take a look at the state of education.

The indicators developed cover 10 main areas:

  • early childhood;
  • primary and secondary;
  • the skills;
  • equity;
  • literacy and numeracy;
  • the citizenship;
  • the school environment;
  • scholarships;
  • teachers;
  • finances.

For each of them, the UNESCO Institute for Statistics wishes to know whether the indicators developed are the best for measuring their state and their evolution. He also wished to know if other indicators not mentioned would be relevant. He would also like participants to identify the two best indicators for each of the major areas.

Those interested in commenting on UNESCO's education indicators are first invited to consult the document “ Towards indicators for a post-2015 education framework ". The precise directives are mentioned there. Subsequently, they are requested to complete the document in Word or Excel and send it to the organization.

The comments will be collected and analyzed and will be used to develop the final terms of reference, which will be presented next May at the World Education Forum in South Korea.
