Everyone's cup of tea!
The UNESCO GEM Report on Education highlights the need to share accountability and bear the responsibility for furthering the reach of education in India.
The UNESCO, very recently, released its latest Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report 2017. The thematic title of this year's report is 'Accountability in Education: Meeting our commitments'. The report is significant as its purview is broader than enlisting mere statistics. The report highlights the major challenges India encounters in achieving the global education goals. Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO, mentioned in the report that, there are 264 million children and youth who are out of school – this is a failure that we must tackle together because education is a shared responsibility and progress can only be sustainable through common efforts. This is essential to meet the ambitions of the Sustainable Development Goals on Education (SDG 4). The Sustainable Education Goals advocate inclusive, equitable and quality education to promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
