The Mishaal organization in collaboration with DFID and Ilm Ideas conducted its annual journalist training to promote media coverage on education issues and to provide the best journalist award to the most elaborate media coverage on education. The ASER and RTE team participated as consultants in Islamabad, Kashmir and Peshawar seminars to disseminate the findings of ASER and how education statistics may be reported on a national level. All these consultations stated the status of education quality and learning outcomes in the respective provinces along with the status of the RTE bill or Act status within that province. These consultation sessions allowed a widespread and direct interaction with the mechanisms of reporting and how education may be put forward in the mainstream agenda.
