EFA Goal 2 - Universal Primary Education (Asia-Pacific End of Decade Notes on Education for All)

14.06.2013

The Asia-Pacific End of Decade Note on Education for All: Goal 2 – Universal Primary Education covers EFA goal 2: “Ensuring that by 2015 all children, particularly girls, children in difficult circumstances and those belonging to ethnic minorities, have access to and complete free and compulsory primary education of good quality.”

 

The Asia-Pacific End of Decade Notes (EDN) present a review of regional and national progress toward the six EFA goals, take stock of the progress, persisting issues and remaining challenges in achieving the goals, and highlight examples of innovative policy reforms and strategies, particularly those aimed at reducing disparities in access to and quality of education. The EDN also emphasize the policy, capacity and governance gaps to be addressed in order to achieve EFA goals in the region. The six reports build on the findings of the Asia-Pacific EFA Mid-Decade Assessment (2006–2008), which examined EFA progress and gaps at the mid-way point of the 2000–2010 decade.
