This report describes the World Bank’s vision for the future of learning and a strategic approach that lays out the lines of actions needed for education systems to move forward in accelerating learning improvement. The report reviews the current learning crisis, including the extent to which COVID-19 has exacerbated it, and then lays out a vision, policy priorities and some principles for education policy reform. The first part describes the World Bank's vision for the future of learning. The second examines the steps that countries can take today in terms of policy reforms and programs to realize and sustain this vision at scale, each charting its own path according to its own context. The third describes the principles that should be followed to ensure coherence and optimize the effects of policy reforms. Together, they address the following broad questions: “What are the main changes needed to strengthen the five pillars of an education system and realize our vision for the future of learning?” “What policies and programs should be prioritized and sustained over time to realize this vision? “How can the effect of investments and policy actions be optimized to achieve learning for everyone, everywhere?”
