In 2010, the UNICEF report ‘Narrowing the Gaps to Meet the Goals’ found that pro-‐‑equity interventions are a faster and more cost-‐‑effective way than ‘business as usual’ to achieve the health Millennium Development Goals. Besides its other impact, the report prompted the question: Is the same true for education? The Simulations for the World Bank to identify cost-‐‑effective strategies for reaching children who are excluded from or underserved by
education systems. Equity is a keystone of both organizations’ approaches to education. SEE is intended to help countries develop cost-‐‑effective, pro-‐‑equity education strategies, and to serve as a global tool for developing evidence-‐‑based documentation of and advocacy for such strategies. Cornerstones of this effort are the Simulations for Equity in Education model and a database on the effectiveness of education interventions around the world.
