Indispensable Schools: Why schools are high on the SDG agenda [D + C Development and Cooperation monthly briefing]

30/12/2015 - D + C Development and Cooperation website

Pirmary schools were high on the agenda of the UN Millenninum Goals. Enrolment figures have improved dramtatically in many countries, but the quality of education is often not as good as it should be. Schools will be similarly high on the 2030 Agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals, and for good reason. The essential thing is to empower all children, and especially those from disagvantaged communities, with the knowledge and basic skill they need to succeed in life.
