In the year following the Transforming Education Summit,, talk and commitments on Foundational Literacy and Numeracy have fallen in volume from their peak in September 2022. While donors and partners are expected to be moving into the “implementation” phase of their efforts to transform education, the scarcity of high-level news on FLN suggests that education may be falling in prioritization relative to other sectors. This September 2023 Foundational Literacy and Numeracy Roundup tracks key policy developments and commitments among DAC Donors, multilaterals, and other actors throughout the third quarter of 2023.
Advocates, leaders, and spectators alike expressed their disappointment at the conclusion of the 78th UN General Assembly, which took place in New York throughout September 2023. Punctuated by notable absences from world leaders and filled with ambitious rhetoric that contrasted sharply with historical precedents, UNGA78 was defined by a familiar cast of competing crises including climate change, the war in Ukraine, and food insecurity.
However, the SDG Summit’s Transforming Education session on September 17 was a much more subdued affair, lasting a total of 90 minutes. Similarly, FLN garnered reduced visibility during the forum, noted only in relation to learning deficits, and the establishment of a group of “front-runner” implementing countries to publicize under-resourced topics, like FLN.
