Transcript

  • 1. ACHIEVE UNIVERSAL PRIMARY EDUCATION
  • 2. TARGET: • Ensure that, by 2015, children everywhere, boys and girls alike, will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling.
  • 3. • In almost all regions, the enrolment ratio exceeded 90% in 2006 . • The number of children out of school fell from 103 million in 1999 to 73 million in 2006. • In sub-Saharan Africa the enrolment ratio has only recently reached 71%. • In Southern Asia the enrolment ratio has climbed to 90%.
  • 4. POVERTY’S GRIP KEEPS CHILDREN OUT OF SCHOOL
  • 5. • Survey data from 40 countries show that, in 32 of them, attendance is higher in urban than in rural areas. • Ensuring that the most vulnerable and marginalized children are enrolled and remain in school requires targeted programs and interventions aimed at poor households seeking to eliminate gender disparities.
  • 6. ADMIDST MANY DEPRIVATIONS, REFUGEE CHILDREN ARE OFTEN DENIED EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES • They are more likely to be deprived of adequate education. • 1, 5 million school-age refugee children live in developing countries especially in urban areas or camps. • In 27 countries, 1 in 5 refugee child isn’t part of the formal education system. • Girls are at a particular risk, often because they lack a safe, quality learning environmental and also due to poverty and early marriage. • At least the number of girls enrolled in the formal education system has increased in recent years.
  • 7. THE QUALITY OF EDUCATION IS AS IMPORTANT AS ENROLEMENT
  • 8. • In Africa, for instance, more children of secondary school age attend primary rather than secondary school. • The proportion of children in developing countries who have completed primary education rose from 79% in 1999 to 85% in 2006. • Ensuring that all primary school students complete their education in a timely manner will not only benefit the individual students; it will also reduce the number of over-age children in the primary education system. • At present, 54% of children of the appropriate age in developing countries attend secondary school.
