World Education Forum in Korea
May 14, 2015

As the target date for the completion of the Millennium Development Goals nears, leaders from the global education community will gather at the World Education Forum to determine the education agenda for the next 15 years as part of the Sustainability Development Goals.

EAA will engage with policy-makers, UN representatives, and partners to advocate for the need to keep a basic quality education a priority in the next education agenda. EAA will emphasise that not providing a quality primary education to every child will mean breaking a promise made to the world’s children in year 2000 when the Millennium Development Goals were set. EAA will remind WEF delegates that providing basic education to all children is the essential foundation for success in all aspects of a wider education goal.
