Executive Summary

This report analyses the education-related findings from the second Lao Social Indicator Survey (LSIS-II) undertaken in 2017. It combines this analysis with policy and practice recommendations from two workshops and multiple consultations with relevant stakeholders, including the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES), Ministry of Labour and Social Welfare and development partners. Educationrelated data from the survey are analysed in terms of a series of key research questions concerning early childhood education (ECE), access and completion at primary and secondary levels, literacy, information and communication technology (ICT) skills, child labour, early marriage, and parental involvement, as well as the enabling environment in terms of data and education sector planning. Each chapter concludes with two types of recommendations: direct recommendations, which are directly relevant to findings from the LSIS-II and overall recommendations, which relate to the wider enabling environment.
