Leaders have set an ambitious new global education goal: universal primary and lower secondary education for all by 2030. But many countries struggle to provide even primary education to marginalised children – mostly girls. Now leaders need to fund the goal or lose yet another generation to poverty.
UNESCO Institute for Statistics has produced a set of interactive maps to highlight where the world stands today against the backdrop of the ambitious new goal.
Explore the data:
- Duration of compulsory education by country
- Percentages and numbers of out-of-school children at primary and lower secondary levels, and boys compared to girls
- Amount of aid to basic education by country (bilateral and multilateral)
