EFA - Global Monitoring Report 2010

The 2010 Education for All Global Monitoring Report ‘Reaching the Marginalized’, will be launched at United Nations Headquarters in New York.
Reaching the marginalized
The daily experiences of slum dwellers in Kenya, ethnic minority children in Viet Nam and Roma children in Hungary may appear poles apart. What they have in common are missed opportunities to realize their hopes and build a better future through education.

A decade has passed since world leaders adopted the Education for All goals. Yet millions of children are still missing out on their right to education. The Education for All Global Monitoring Report 2010 - which uses an innovative new tool to identify the 'education poor' - argues that the failure to reach these excluded children is holding back overall progress on education.

The Report examines why these children are being left behind. Discrimination and inequalities based on poverty, gender, location, ethnicity, disability and language play a key role - and often they combine to reinforce disadvantage. Within education and beyond, governments must adopt targeted policies and practices that combat exclusion.
