The GEM Report team is pleased to announce that the 2017/8 Report, Accountability in Education: Meeting our Commitments, will be released on October 24, 2017. We can also reveal the Report’s front cover, which shows a girl protesting outside her school.

The 2017/8 GEM Report tracks the world’s progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 4 and its targets. It also shows how important and relevant accountability is in education. It reminds us that education is a shared responsibility and that we all have a role to play in contributing to SDG 4.

When accountability works, there are clear lines of responsibility and a roadmap for taking action when problems arise. When accountability is absent or weak, negligence and abuse can take hold. And when accountability is badly designed, there can be negative side effects that can put the achievement of our global goal at risk.

The 2017/8 GEM Report will be launched at two major events being held in Nairobi, Kenya and Brasilia, Brazil.
