Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up.     For every child, access Even pre-COVID-19, South Asia was home to the largest numbers of out-of-school children (OOSC) and youth at 31.8 million with 8.2 million at primary (6 ? 9 years) and 23.6 million at secondary level (10 ? 14 years) (UNESCO 2017). Of children who are in school, millions are completing primary education without even mastering foundational literacy and numeracy skills, let alone the ?21st century skills' required for meaningful employment, personal well-being and active participation in society. In response to SDG 4, increasing focus has been placed on measuring and improving student learning outcomes. Evidence-informed policies and practices to improve education quality and equity require robust assessment and monitoring systems, which generate accurate and detailed information on the state of student learning and equity gaps. Digital learning provides huge opportunities for expanding and improving learning, both for those inside and outside of the formal education system but requires bridging the multiple digital divides (including devices, connectivity, skills, as well as the gender, language, and other digital divides). Systematic high-level technical support of the Education Specialist (Quality and Inclusive Learning) in the ROSA Education Section is required with expertise in these areas to work with country offices to accelerate progress towards improving education quality and equity of learning outcomes.     How can you make a difference?
