Education For All Global Monitoring Report



  • On 18 December 1925, the International Bureau of Education (IBE) began work as a NGO in the service of international educational development.

  • Headquarters: Place de Fontenoy, Paris, France

  • Membership: 195 member states

  • Head:  Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO


On April 10, 2015 UNESCO published the Education For All Global Monitoring Report to evaluate the progress of countries on these goals…

  • Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) said that while India’s education system succeeded in enrolling many more children, there were wide disparities in students’ achievement of basic skills across the States, a finding validated in the official National Achievement Survey of grade 3 students

  • India likely to reach the EFA first goal of 80 pc enrolment in pre-primary education by 2015, has already reached the second goal of universal primary enrolment, and will fall just short of universal youth literacy by 2015

  • The one measurable goal India will not reach is to reduce its adult illiteracy rate by half (it has reduced it by 26 per cent).

  • The country’s major success has been in reaching gender parity for primary and lower secondary enrolment, the only country in South and West Asia to do so.

  • It has also made progress towards improving the quality of education, but major gaps remain.



Nearly half of all countries have achieved universal pre-primary, primary and lower secondary enrolment

  • Only 25 per cent of the countries have reduced by half their levels of adult illiteracy, and women continue to make up two-thirds of the illiterate.

  • Two-thirds of the countries have also achieved gender parity at the primary level, but less than half at the secondary level.

  • The world has advanced by 2015 beyond where it would have been if the trends of the 1990s had persisted

  • A lesson re-emerging over the past 15 years is that while technical solutions are important, gaining political influence and traction is of even greater significance

  • In April 2000, the governments of 164 countries adopted the Dakar Framework to deliver Education For All commitments by 2015
