This working paper is one in a series of country reports commissioned by the UN Special Envoy for Global Education and coordinated by the Center for Universal Education at the Brookings Institution. The report was prepared for the Learning for All Ministerial Meeting on April 18, 2013, co-hosted by the World Bank Group President, the UN Secretary-General, and the UN Special Envoy for Global Education. The meeting brings together ministers of finance and education from eight countries that are home to nearly half the world’s out-of-school children. It aims to focus on concrete steps that will accelerate progress toward the 2015 deadline of ensuring that all children can go to school and learn. The proposals in this report represent a snapshot of the ongoing conversations within countries and with the international community. Considered a “living document,” the working paper on South Sudan is an initial set of proposals to accelerate progress on education.
