This publication has been prepared to help decision-makers as well as educational planners and managers make informed decisions regarding access to practical, effective, and usable open school data. It argues that education authorities have much to learn from the experience of civil society in the area, emphasizing the need to shift from an administrative approach to a more citizen-centred perspective.

Building on the research conducted by IIEP-UNESCO in Africa, Asia, Australia, and Latin America, it draws lessons from more than 50 countries, which have experimented with innovative approaches to increasing the usefulness of open school data and strengthening their impacts on transparency and accountability. More specifically, it builds on the results of six in-depth case studies carried out by IIEP-UNESCO in Australia, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Pakistan (Punjab), and the Philippines, Each of these studies compared government-led and citizen-led initiatives, and surveyed 250 school-level actors.
