RISE Tanzania

Big results now! Research on education systems reform in Tanzania


The study examines how the support for education systems reform evolves over time and to what extent support is dependent on the design of the reform.


This is an extensive research project led by Georgetown University. It examines the effects of nationwide reforms that the Government of Tanzania is undertaking in an effort to improve learning for students in its primary and secondary schools. A multidisciplinary team of researchers with close ties to the region and expertise in education-focused analysis conducts the project — AIGHD’s Youdi Schipper is part of this team. The aim is to gain insights that lead to better education for students in Tanzania, and in other nations where learning levels need to improve to give the next generation the basic skills they need to lead better lives.
