Leave a Comment
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has launched a new education initiative to make education a top global priority and boost progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in education. "Our shared goals are simple. We want children to attend primary school and to progress toward higher education that will help them succeed in life," Ban said on  the launching of the initiative - Education First. 

 Education First initiative comprises three priorities -- putting every child in school, improving the quality of learning and fostering global citizenship, said UN officials. Achieving universal primary education is part of the MDGs, a list of eight anti-poverty targets to be achieved by 2015. Education First seeks to make a breakthrough to mobilise all partners -- both traditional and new -- to achieve universal primary education ahead of the 2015 target date for the MDGs. IANS

Education can and should be the most powerful make equal force in a country, and so the way of education improvement should be open to comprehensive autonomous dialogue. But key decisions tend to be taken behind closed doors in ministries of education without public awareness, let alone open consultation.
