Education for all 2000-2015: achievements and challenges

In 2000, at the World Education Forum in Dakar, Senegal, 164 governments agreed on the Dakar Framework for Action, Education for All: Meeting our Collective Commitments, launching an ambitious agenda to reach six wide-ranging education goals by 2015.

This report provides a complete assessment of progress towards the Framework’s goals: early childhood care and education; universal primary education; youth and adult skills; adult literacy; gender parity and equality; and quality of education. Looking forward, the report also identifies key factors that must be considered when planning and implementing the post-2015 global education agenda.
