Surprisingly, there has never been a World Development Report (WDR) devoted to education in the almost 40 years of the WDR series. Other WDRs have had valuable messages on education, but they have not had the space to analyze the sector in as much depth as the WDR 2018. With a surge in high-quality, policy-relevant research and innovative approaches in education during this century, it is time to take stock of what we have learned – about what the successes and remaining issues are, how to tackle the latter, and how to make solutions sustainable when education systems are inevitably embedded in complex social, political, economic, and cultural contexts.
