This policy brief reports findings from 'JustEd', an international study that explored educational policies, curricula, pedagogies and young people's experiences of secondary schooling in Nepal, Peru and Uganda and surveyed their knowledge, attitudes and intended actions in relation to sustainable development. It offers recommendations to increase the effectiveness of education's contributions to the SDGs by giving greater priority to young people's experiences of justice, safety and dignity in school.
