Assesses risks, identifies assets, and detects the type of education and other services available to local communities in contexts of adversity; data helps design relevant and more effective education responses for the safety, socioemotional well-being, and educational success of learners.
Conducts rapid situational analysis in adverse educational systems by collecting and analyzing qualitative and quantitative data.
This program, in contrast to other SABER tools, does not benchmark or compare countries with a quantitative rubric, instead offering a process for contextualized education resilience studies. It collects and analyzes qualitative and quantitative data on adversities, assets, school-community relations and education policies and services in each context. The Education Resilience Approaches Program provides a range of technical support options to collect resilience evidence—either as part of a situational analysis for program design or a more general research endeavor. Three support instruments are available at this time:
TOOLS AND RESOURCES
The ERA program uses a systematic framework that includes four components, each corresponding to a policy goal. For each policy goal, resilience levers have been identified.
Manage and minimize adversity in education
Use and protect positive engagement and assets in education communities
Foster relevant school and community support
Align education system services to the resilience assets
The three instruments provided by SABER-ERA are designed to contribute resilience based evidence for assessments, planning and program design in particular contexts. The program’s focus on protection of risks and promotion of assets in education communities helps to bridge education systems’ response to crisis within their longer-term development and planning activities.
