Description
Is it possible for the international community to achieve universal primary and secondary education by 2030 even when today – only 12 years from the deadline for the Sustainable Development Goals – 263 million children do not go to school, more than 400 million leave school without basic primary-level skills, and more than half of the world's children and youth are not on track to gain the most basic skills for the modern workforce? How could it be possible to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for all – starting in the early years through adulthood – for the 1.6 billion school-age young people on our planet? The Education Commission is an organization chaired by Former British Prime Minister and UN Special Envoy for Education Gordon Brown. About 20 high level participants (including Amina Mohamed, Jim Kim the president of the World Bank, Graca Machel, and a number of ministers and heads of states) will talk about the need to invest in education.
