Note to Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop MP regarding concerns about the Global Partnership for Education
I've just sent this note.
The Honourable Julie Bishop MP
What is the “value added” of an organization that rewards the misdeeds of its “Leadership Team?” Will “change and growth” occur at the expense of, say, transparency, accountability and ethical behavior? Will “education sector performance” assessment be conducted in the same way as GPE conducts its job candidate assessments?
The ultimate victims, of course, are the intended beneficiaries of GPE: Rather than being provided with the best educational services the trust fund can offer, they must deal with an organization whose mismanagement at the highest levels needlessly saps resources and talent. This situation deserves serious attention, not only by the GPE Secretariat and Board, but by the Fund’s donors, who contribute millions every year.
