Learning For All

Education is a powerful driver of development.
Education is a powerful driver of development and is one of the strongest instruments for reducing poverty and improving health, gender equality, peace, and stability. Although there has been great progress in the last decade — many more children attend schools and girls’ education has markedly improved — 59 million children are still out of school (2013) and 250 million cannot read or write although many have been to school. Education has large, consistent returns in terms of income and counters widening inequality, but this potential is too often unrealized due to alarmingly low learning levels. Providing all children with a quality education that teaches them skills for work is critical to end poverty by 2030.
