Scrutiny of the country action plans will show activities in the four global priority areas in many of the Bank's client countries (Annex 6). However, the 120 country plans include many other activities, so the global priority program activities are only a fraction of the full agenda of the education sector in the Bank. In developing this strategy, careful thought has been given to lessons learned: why have some efforts in education fallen short of their objectives, and others succeeded? Key errors of the past are noted: failing to place enough emphasis on the quality of teaching and on learning outcomes; designing overly complex projects that make unrealistic demands on clients' institutional capacity; focusing too narrowlyon a single sub-sector in isolation from the rest of the education system, or on expanding physical infrastructure without adequate concern for the activities and policies that determine learning outcomes.

Staff training is targeting the acquisition of the skills, values, attitudes and behaviors that underlie effective interaction between Bank staff, clients and partners.
