Toward Monitoring the Post-2015 Education Agenda - By looking back on EFA goals in Asia-Pacific

UNESCO Institute for Statistics: Fact Sheet, Issue 2, May 2015

In May 2015, the education community met again to discuss achievements and shortfalls in the implementation of the EFA goals and education-related MDGs, and to agree on a joint position for the education goal and targets for the post-2015 development agenda, which should be adopted by the United Nation Member States in September 2015.

With the deadline for the EFA goals having passed, this fact sheet assesses the EFA achievements in the Asia and Pacific region by looking at the degree of progress towards the six EFA goals and its major contributions most notably raising the duration of compulsory education, improving student participation in all levels of education and increasing school life expectancy. At the same time, bottlenecks and barriers are observed which hinder expanding the education system and its efficiency and quality. Finally, it sheds light on issues and challenges of monitoring the education post-2015 agenda based on our current experiences are discussed.
