Strengthening the Egyptian Education System to Better Reach Marginalized Children and Youth: What We Can Learn from Randomized Evaluations
Please join us for the upcoming Global Evidence for Egypt spotlight seminar, titled “Strengthening the Egyptian Education System to Better Reach Marginalized Children and Youth: What We Can Learn from Randomized Evaluations.” This event, hosted by the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) at the American University in Cairo (AUC), will take place on Sunday, February 23 from 5-7pm at the American University in Cairo, Tahrir Campus, Oriental Hall.

This seminar is part of a Global Evidence for Egypt Spotlight Series which brings together Egyptian policymakers and leading J-PAL affiliated researchers to discuss pertinent policy issues in Egypt. During these seminars, J-PAL affiliates focus on the issues from a global research perspective and offer evidence-informed recommendations for tackling these issues. Meanwhile, policymakers highlight development priorities in Egypt, helping ground the evidence in the Egyptian context while exploring possible policy solutions.
The upcoming spotlight seminar will focus on strengthening the Egyptian education system to better reach marginalized children and youth. This seminar will feature Sule Alan, Affiliated Professor at J-PAL, and Yasmin Helal, Executive Director of EducateMe, and will draw from the related global evidence to provide insights into how Egypt can strengthen its education system to ultimately improve learning outcomes among all students, particularly those from marginalized backgrounds.
