Most Countries Unlikely to Meet MDG

Most sub-Saharan African countries will not meet the Millennium Development Goal of ensuring that all children receive a primary school education by 2015, warns UNESCO

The United Nations (UN) states that most sub-Saharan African countries will not meet the Millennium Development Goal of ensuring that all children receive a primary school education by 2015, partly because of a shift in donor focus towards security and governance.

The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation’s Pauline Rose, points out that South and West Asia have the fastest rise in numbers in primary schools, contributing more than half the rise in primary school pupils.

Rose highlighted the disproportionate cut in aid to education as a key reason for the lack of progress in reaching the goals.
