THE PARTNERSHIP

The Partnership to Strengthen Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education (PSIPSE) is collaboration of funders and partner organizations seeking to catalyze innovation and systemic change around access to quality and relevant secondary education globally.

This partnership is testing new ideas and scaling approaches that have the potential to transform how young people access education, while also improving the quality and relevance of what is being taught.”
