Launch: Online Forum on right to education indicators. (Right to Education, 1 Oct 2010)
Measuring education as a right
These three questions offer starting points for a debate on how to sharpen the indicators and take them forward in an effective, collaborative way. Feel free to address one or more:
Data availability: Human rights indicators must not be overly determined by the data that is available. Yet, data availability is a pre-requisite for the effective application of indicators. How do we make the most of available data without compromising the human rights approach?
Who to involve: Which communities and actors must be engaged in measuring education, and how do we ensure that they are so, in a non-discriminatory, participatory and accountable way?
Your experience with indicators: what is the most challenging issue in your work with indicators? How are you dealing with it? What questions would you ask to others in order to help you deal with it? What would you recommend to others?
