Education Forum Meeting This Week

The World Education Forum, one of the most important and decisive global meetings on education, is taking place in South Korea this week. In one of the previous meetings they had decided on six universal education goals which are: Expand early childhood care and education, Provide free and compulsory primary education for all, Promote learning and life skills for young people and adults, Increase adult literacy by 50 percent, Achieve gender parity by 2005, gender equality by 2015, and Improve the quality of education. Some countries will claim that they have reached ‘universal’ enrollment in primary education, or the equivalent of claiming that all children of primary school age are enrolled and attending primary school in their country. Other countries will say that they are very close to reaching this goal or at least one of the other six goals, which can cover education from early childhood to adult literacy. Now they may claim this even if it isn't true and also reaching the goal just isn't enough. All children should have a chance to be enrolled no matter the situation and they should also be encouraged to enroll. How do you think that goal can be achieved?
