Edited by: Andrew Robertson, Rupert Jones-Parry

Commonwealth Education Partnerships 2014/15 is the essential overview of education in the Commonwealth. Looking ahead to the triennial Commonwealth Conference of Education Ministers (19CCEM, Nassau, 2015), the publication is an invaluable resource for ministers, senior officials and other stakeholders. As we approach the target date for the Millennium Development Goals, governments and societies are looking a fresh at what development means, how education contributes and what is required to re-skill for a sustainable world. An added dimension is that 2014 is also the Year of Small Island Developing States, which are at the 'sharp end' of these questions and central to the Commonwealth family. Commonwealth Education Partnerships 2014/15 includes the latest thinking on: * Early childhood education, family learning and literacy * Access and quality * gender, language and curriculum issues * Donor research o development impacts: private schools, higher education and technical and vocational education and training * E-learning in Africa -humanitarian contexts and new platforms * Complementary initiatives - from the grass roots to large-scale philanthropy * Education and environmental uncertainty. The publication also includes extensive education profiles of the 53 Commonwealth member countries, incorporating the latest data on education systems, participation and outcomes.
