Despite Jordan’s remarkable achievements and numerous initiatives pursued by the government and different stakeholders, to reform the education sector, several challenges still persist. One major challenge is accountability within the education system. This paper seeks to provide insights into the challenges and gaps in accountability, as well as explore inter-linkages with the legal framework, and the challenges of decentralisation and governance. To this end, a review of the relevant literature, and fieldwork research were conducted to identify obstacles related to access to education and the provision of quality education and a supportive learning environment in Jordan. In addition to a learning event was held entitled "Fostering a Culture of Accountability for improving the Learning Environment for Children in Jordan" in order to discuss the findings of the project “Education for the Future: Communities of Learning among Syrians and Jordanians in Host Communities ” with a wider stakeholder community.
