With cross-border education more than tripling in the last thirty years, the diverse range of opportunities to study abroad (e.g. e-higher education, campuses abroad, franchised courses, etc.) are on the rise, and with them opportunities for corruption.
Open school data can foster accountability and combat corruption in education, but only when it is used effectively and any malpractice is addressed with clear consequence.
