Summary

This resource contains messages and information specifically about education and conflict from the full EFA GMR 2015 report, available at: http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0023/002322/232205e.pdf

“...There has been tremendous progress across the world since 2000 – but we are not there yet. Despite all efforts by governments, civil society and the international community, the
world has not achieved Education for All.”

“...And yet, for all this progress, 15 years of monitoring shows sobering results.There are still 58 million children out of school globally and around 100 million children
who do not complete primary education. Inequality in education has increased, with the poorest and most disadvantaged shouldering the heaviest burden. The world’s poorest
children are four times more likely not to go to school than the world’s richest children, and five times more likely not to complete primary school. Conflict remains a steep
barrier, with a high and growing proportion of out-of-school children living in conflict zones. Overall, the poor quality of learning at primary level still has millions of children
leaving school without basic skills.”
