Education for All
Education For All is a movement organised by UNESCO. Its goal is to provide children, teenagers and adults all the learning tools that they need by 2015.
Education for All was started in 1990 during the World Conference on Education for All in Jomtien, Thailand. Representatives from 155 countries and 150 organisations at this conference pledged to provide education for all by 2000. The goal was that everyone would "benefit from educational opportunities designed to meet their basic learning needs".
In 2000, member nations met in Dakar, Senegal and evaluated the countries, discovering that many had not reached the goal of providing basic education for all. They decided to achieve their goal by 2015, and created 6 solid goals:
The six goals are:
- Goal 1: Expand early childhood care and education (ECCE).
- Goal 2: Provide free and compulsory primary education for all.
- Goal 3: Promote learning and life skills for young people and adults.
- Goal 4: Increase adult literacy by 50 percent.
- Goal 5: Achieve gender parity by 2005 gender equality by 2015.
- Goal 6: Improve the quality of education.
UNESCO has been mandated to lead the movement and coordinate the international efforts to reach Education for All. Governments, development agencies, civil society, non-governmental organisations and the media are some of the partners working toward reaching these goals.
