We're living in the era of a constantly changing world. Ban Ki-Moon, a former UN General Secretary, said: United Nations Millennium Development Goals were the first step to develop more structured Goals for the 21st Century Issues. In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly proposed a new Sustainable Development Agenda. The "Sustainable Development Goals: 17 Goals to Transform Our World" look for issues like no poverty, equal education, reduced inequality and decent work and economic growth.
If the 193 UN countries agreed to work on this agenda, what's the real problem?
- In 2017, almost 40% of the world youth hadn't reached -at least- Secondary School;
- According to UN, an estimated 50 per cent of out-of-school children of primary school age live in conflict-affected areas;
- 103 million youth worldwide lack basic literacy skills.
- Most of the Developing countries are still working to define a structural education reform, according to their needs. Although, most of these countries have a big percentage of non-public-education.
The new paradigm of education must warranty equal education, no matter socioeconomic classes. Each nation Ministery of Education Should recognize the 21st-century tools and needs, to make actualized academic programs and alliances.
What do you think your Country must work on to improve quality and access to education?
