Not a dangerous yet a serious issue that the world has totally forgotten. We are missing on a key deadline of the world’s most important issue, i.e. universal education.
It was in 2015 that the world has agreed on the universal education drive that insists all the young boys and girls should receive completely free and quality primary and secondary education by 2030.
But the saddest news is that no country made enough effort in achieving that besides the several changes in educational policies and funding programs still, the illiteracy remains the same.
The United National has already urged the world to see through the issue of universal education. On Tuesday the UN’s agency (UNESCO) said that the countries who agreed on the same and holding back on the funding.
According to the reports, 40 per cent of the children still did not complete their secondary education which will raise t0 50 per cent in Sub-Saharan Africa.
225 million children are expected to be completing the school education by 2030 but this seems to become incomplete when the deadline will finally arrive.
In an interview, the Director of UNESCO Institute for Statistics Silva Montoya, said “What’s the point in setting targets if we can’t track them? Better finance and coordination are needed to fix this data gap before we get any closer to the deadline.”
Well, this is like a wakeup call for all the developing and developed countries to encourage the education of youth so that no child will ever have to suffer from unemployment, poverty, homelessness, and hunger in the world.
The countries like India and China who are in a race to become the developed countries should have to promote free education to have the skilled manpower to support their economies.
