Comparative Performance Indicators
Comparative performance data shows that countries receiving support from the Global Partnership for Education perform better in all basic education indicators than countries receiving no Partnership support.
The Global Partnership for Education conducted an analysis to measure the growth of the education system in its low and lower-middle income partner countries ('GPE Countries') and compare its impact to other equivalent developing countries receiving no Partnership Support ('non-GPE countries').
Five indicators were used:
For each indicator, data clearly reveals that countries receiving support from the Global Partnership outperform countries receiving no support from the Partnership.
On many of the indicators, GPE-country performance is double or triple that of non-GPE countries. Over one decade, the absolute impact to countries and children is truly substantial.
Total enrollment is over three times higher in GPE countries and children are twice as likely to complete primary school. GPE countries are also over three times more likely to have improvements in gender parity in completion. On developing country financing commitments, GPE partner countries demonstrate significant increases in domestic budget allocations to education, as compared to non-Global Partnership countries where these allocations are decreasing.
