  • 1. Millennium Development Goal #2: Achieve universal primary education Situation in 2010 By Daniela Nita
  • 2. TARGET Ensure that, by 2015 , children everywhere, boys and girls alike, will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling
  • 3. Situation in 2010 at-a-glance:
    • There is clear evidence that targeted interventions, sustained by adequate funding and political commitment, have resulted in rapid progress in some areas .
    • In others, the poorest groups , those without education or living in more remote areas, have been neglected and not provided the conditions to improve their lives.
    • Getting children into school is a vital first step, but in order to receive the full benefits of education they must continue to attend classes.
    • Even as the number of school-age children continues to rise, the total number of children out of school is decreasing, from 106 million in 1999 to 69 million in 2008.
  • 4. “ Hope dims for universal education by 2015, even as many poor countries make tremendous strides” – UN MDG 2010 Report
    • Enrolment in primary education has continued to rise, reaching 89 per cent in the developing world.
    • The pace of progress is insufficient to ensure that, by 2015, all girls and boys complete a full course of primary schooling.
  • 5. Sub-Saharan Africa & Southern Asia
    • are home to the vast majority of children out of school
    • almost half of the world’s drop-outs (31 million) are in sub-Saharan Africa, and more than a quarter (18 million) are in Southern Asia.
  • 6. Sub-Saharan Africa & Southern Asia (cont…)
    • In half the countries in sub-Saharan Africa with available data, more than 30 per cent of primary-school students drop out before reaching the final grade.
    • Together, sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia count for almost three quarters of the total number of drop-out children in the world.
  • 7. Risk factors for school drop-out
    • The socio-economic conditions : the poorest quintile (20%) account for almost 40% of total school drop-outs
    • Rural areas : rural children are twice as likely to be out of school as children living in urban areas
    • Gender : girls are more likely to drop out from school than boys.
    • Social and cultural barriers to education : in many countries, educating girls is widely perceived as being of less value than educating boys.
