Evidence-Based Curriculum Reforms for Transformative Education

Introduction

Over the last several years, researchers, government, and nonprofits in Kenya have collaborated to produce a rich body of evidence around education. Consolidating the lessons from this research and applying these to policy and practice is a major challenge for Kenya’s education sector—particularly during the ongoing national curriculum reform.

Appropriate consumer protection is becoming ever more central to ensuring the financial wellbeing of the poor. Ensuring that consumers are able to select and use financial products to their best advantage is a key component of financial inclusion. Without a robust consumer protection framework, even the most educated and capable consumer is likely to have difficulty making prudent financial choices. It is vital that policies aiming to protect consumers account for lessons from behavioral economics and be subject to testing before they are nationally scaled.
