Education is the right of all children and the duty of every government that adheres to the Convention on the Rights of the Child ratified by almost all countries of the world. Every child has the right to basic education of high quality.
Education leads towards development, which is the surest and most powerful way to promote economic and social progress and get responsible and productive citizens. There’s no country that cannot afford their children’s education, especially in the new age of information.
Educating girls is a prerequisite to breaking the cycle of poverty that’s the legacy of generations. Investment in the education of girls puts the entire community on the path of economic and social progress, as is the welfare of the child and the mother’s level of education. Educated girls grow to become uneducated women who, in general, are able to achieve higher incomes for their families. They will be able to have greater participation in the decision-making process, postpone the age of marriage, and provide better medical care for themselves and their families, better nutrition for their families, and stimulate their children’s education.
Education is essential to solving some of the most complex problems we face today, with the disgusting phenomenon of child labor where there is no education, or where a low level of education is irrelevant to the needs of the people, and for the prevention of HIV/AIDS. Schools offer crucial opportunities for arming children with basic life skills. Later on, they can earn their high school diploma or the equivalent, the GED diploma. Education is a high-quality grassland and highly relevant to issues like gender discrimination and poverty.
Noticeable progress has been made during the 1990s, when the Convention on the Rights of the Child urged the mobilization of political commitment and global campaigns, and also led to an increase of allocations for public education, and encourages a follow-up procedures and oversight organization required from countries that had signed the Convention to create a sense of responsibility among the parties concerned.
While the knowledge base has greatly expanded on how to provide education for all, and the application of some important lessons on ratification schools for girls, in order to narrow the gender gap in education, lessons learned about the importance of teaching methods, materials, and relevant learning environments, high-quality, to attract children to school and retain them. Online education may prove to be a great solution for future projects but we need to make sure enough students will earn an online Education Degree to ensure high-quality education delivery.
There are four objectives set at the Summit for Children which are directly linked to education and literacy:
Primary education: every child must be able to enjoy the right to education. Primary education must be completed by not less than 80% of school-age children in four years of primary education, Indeed, there have been some improvements in relation to the attainment of premium education, and a record 82% of children of primary school age in primary schools. ee also this post about Microsoft Research and how they use creative mining data.
Gender disparities: the educational disparities between girls and boys must be reduced. The enrollment gap must be narrowed in half, from six to three percentage points. The South Asian region has been remarkably successful, but that the sub-Saharan African region has witnessed equally narrowing of the gap between the sexes.
Adult literacy: to reduce adult illiteracy by not less than half the rate special attention will be given to women’s literacy. This may pose challenges. The adult illiteracy rates dropped from 25% in 1990 to 20% today, but because of population growth, the number of illiterate adults has remained over 900 million over the world, and increasingly concentrated illiteracy among women.
Knowledge and skills for a better life: the goals are to provide people with the knowledge, skills, and values necessary to achieve a better life, and there was some slight progress towards that end, it was to reach more young people through education and training, which will enhance life skills and employment opportunities, However, the huge rates of unemployment in Central and Eastern Europe, together with the spread of the HIV/AIDS in Africa pose dangerous threats to youth who need to be stimulated so these threats can be countered.
