With the goal of improving the capacity of the Peruvian education system, experts from UNESCO and technical teams from the Ministry of Education meet from 23-25 October at the Seminar entitled “General Education Quality Analysis Framework” (GEQAF).

The event’s objectives are to identifying the current limitations to achieving a quality education system and to propose strategies to strengthen and improve the education system.

This memorandum emphasises education as a right based on the strategic objectives proposed at the national level, such as the National Education Project (PEN), and at the international level, like the World Declaration on Education for All (EFA) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The meeting brings together the following UNESCO representatives: Renato Opertti from the International Bureau of Education (IBE-UNESCO) and Moritz Bilagher from the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in Latin America and the Caribbean (OREALC/UNESCO Santiago).
