Since the new millennium, there have been remarkable successes in terms of increase in literacy rates and of ensuring universal primary education. However, inequalities related to the rural/urban divide as well as the stability of a country have halted progress in some regions of the world. Achieving this objective requires bold action to end discrimination in schools, to increase universal literacy and numeracy, as well as to ensure access to pre-primary, primary, secondary, and technical, vocational and higher education.
