Save the Children

There is a global learning crisis. More children are going to school, but millions of children are not learning essential foundational skills. Save the Children is committed to addressing this crisis, with particular attention to the most marginalised and deprived children. All children have the right to learn from a quality basic education.

The Quality Learning Framework describes Save the Children’s best understanding of what makes a quality basic education. The Framework outlines sixteen components across five foundations that support the well-being and learning of all children. Together they describe a learning environment in which all children are safe and protected, engaged by active and effective teachers and supported by their parents, community and school leadership. The foundations are underpinned by policies and systems that promote learning and tackle exclusion.
