How their work relates to education systems

In "Creating Efficient, Effective, and Just Educational Systems through Multi-Sector Strategies of Reform," Moore's work focused on developing a scheme for describing national education system by defining and measuring the aggregate demand for education, as well as the wants, needs, rights, and obligations to education within a society. Moore finds that most national education systems are a mix of private and public sectors. Ultimately, this paper argues that the main challenge for education policy of national governments is determining how to build a national education system that can learn by doing, and by talking about the value of what is produced through the system.[1]

In "Creative Destruction or Idiot Winds: Schumpeterian Theory Meets the Educational Sector in Developing Countries," Moore explores the question of how developing countries can best continue to make progress and accelerate the rate of learning. Moore makes the same assumption that much of RISE's research has supported: "important productivity gains in the educational systems of developing countries will not be solved simply by increasing the scale of resources committed to the task."[2] Because simply investing more money in what has already been done will not make the gains we wish to see, Moore suggests that education systems must innovate "widely and quickly to find better ways of providing educational services to produce better educational outcomes."[2]
