The 2015 Global Monitoring provides a complete assessment of progress since 2000 towards the target date for reaching the Dakar Framework for Action’s goals.
The 2015 Global Monitoring Report – Education for All 2000-2015: Achievements and Challenges – provides a complete assessment of progress since 2000 towards the target date for reaching the Dakar Framework for Action’s goals.
It takes stock of whether the world achieved the Education for All (EFA) goals and stakeholders upheld their commitments, and explains possible determinants of the pace of progress. It also identifies key lessons for shaping the post-2015 global education agenda.
The main findings are:
- Just one-third of countries have achieved all the measurable EFA goals.
- In 2012, 121m children and adolescents were still out of school, down from 204m in 1999.
- Half of countries have now achieved Universal Primary Enrolment and 10% more are close.
- Poorest children are five times more likely not to complete primary school than richest.
