[MLE] FW: [se-ed] FOR INFO: Educaton Community Update 2

Dear MLE interest group,
In the past I have forwarded things from the below mentioned Solution Exchange discussion portal. But since then many more people joined the MLE interest list. Hence I forward an update again.

The website says : "Solution Exchange is a UN initiative for development practitioners in India. For more information, please visit". Even though the focus is much wider then MLE and think you would enjoy following the discussions. In fact several of you are already participating in the discussions!
