Session Three | Part Two – Higher Education: How do we finance the future of education and align resources with needs?

September 22, 2020

  • This event has passed.

Time September 22nd 9:30 am EDT (UTC-4)

The economic crisis following the pandemic will push policy-makers to think harder about how to invest limited resources best, and how to strike a balance between resourcing the present and securing the future. Inevitably, this will mean reconciling the needs of people by demographics, geography and social background. At the same time, the world shows huge differences in the educational outcomes achieved per dollar invested. What can we learn about making educational investment more effective? How can we mobilize the resources that are needed?
