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. Researchers and national policy-makers attending an International Policy Forum in Manila, organized by the UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP-UNESCO) and the Department of Education in the Philippines, underscored this as they discussed open data initiatives from around the world.
An upcoming IIEP International Policy Forum in Manila organized with the Department of Education in the Philippines will look at Using Open School Data to Improve Transparency and Accountability in Education.
From 4 to 10 July 2016, Transparency International (TI) organised its 7th annual School on Integrity in Vilnius, Lithuania. 120 young activists and future leaders from over 60 countries exchanged their experiences in the fight against corruption and participated in the anti-corruption and accountability training.
In early June, Muriel Poisson from IIEP advised the Council of Europe’s Committee on Culture, Science, Education and Media on measures to engage youth in the detection of corruption and the enforcement of anti-corruption initiatives.
Together with heads of state, international organizations, civil society and the private sector, IIEP will take part in the 16th International Anti-Corruption Conference from 2-4 September in Malaysia.
