Quality Education

2020-12-07 10:19:46 19

Ensure inclusive and fair quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

Obtaining high-quality education is the foundation for improving people's lives and achieving sustainable development. Countries have made significant progress in increasing educational opportunities at all levels and increasing enrollment rates, especially girls’ enrollment. Basic literacy and arithmetic skills have been greatly improved, but more efforts and greater steps are needed to achieve the goal of universal education. For example, the world has achieved gender equality at the primary education stage, but few countries have achieved this goal at all stages of education.
