Education aid gets children into school but it's not the smartest solution

On Thursday, the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) will launch a campaign in Brussels to raise $3.5bn (£2.1bn). Refreshing this global pot is important, but even more so is securing increases in domestic resources for education, which can raise substantially more money and which is much more sustainable.
To be effective, we need to focus in four areas.
First, it is vital to increase education spending.
Second, taking steps to increase the overall size of government budgets could hugely increase the domestic resources available for education.
Third, there is a case for increasing the sensitivity of the budget to policy priorities.
Lastly, but perhaps most important, is ensuring the independent scrutiny of education budgets.
