How citizens can engage in educational planning and policy

In IIEP’s recent virtual Policy Forum, Open Government in education: Learning from experience, the message was clear: there is growing momentum to both share more information and collaborate, but also to act on feedback and improve education systems. For three days (16-18 November), decision-makers and educational managers, OGP country representatives, civil society members, and researchers from 50 countries discussed how to move forward with open government as a promising model for integrity planning in education. 

Machine learning for fighting corruption in public procurement for education services and institutions

The funding systems of schools differ significantly across countries (for an overview of selected best performing countries and their funding systems; see De Witte et al., 2019), which means that, depending on the exact funding system, resources can be managed by the school, district, municipality or ministry, or a combination of the above. Whatever the system looks like, almost all must run public tenders, especially for large contracts.

Cross-country statistics on corruption in education are a useful tool for policy-makers and researchers. Complementing national diagnostic tools, they provide measures of particular corrupt practices in a given country, allowing cross-country comparisons, and time-trend analysis. However, such data are scattered across databases developed by various institutions.
