Universal education goal ‘unrealistic’, warns UNESCO

United Nations, Jul 10 (UNI) Nations are not doing enough to ensure that every child goes to school – and stays there - by 2030, a key commitment of the 2030 Global Goals agenda, UNESCO has said.
According to data from the UN’s Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), one in six youngsters aged between six and 17 will still be out of class in a decade’s time.
Attendance levels are best in primary school, with information from nearly 150 countries showing that 84 per cent of children completed this first educational tier in 2018, up from 70 per cent in 2000. With an extra push and investment, UNESCO believes that getting all children into primary school “is just possible”, by 2030.
But it warns that as children get older, attendance levels are much lower, with four in 10 children globally expected not to complete secondary education by 2030. This figure is likely to grow to half of all youngsters in sub-Saharan Africa, where the school-age population is growing faster than anywhere else, UNESCO says.
