EFA 2000 Assessment

The EFA 2000 Assessment was the most in-depth evaluation of basic education ever undertaken. Conducted in more than 180 countries, the Assessment took stock of the current status of basic education in each country and evaluated the progress achieved during the 1990s since the World Conference on Education for All (Jomtien, Thailand, March 1990). It provided a critical mass of information to help ensure that educational programmes are rooted in the real world. The results of the Assessment were presented at the World Education Forum (26-28 April 2000, Dakar, Senegal).
