United Nations’ 2013 Millennium Development Goals Report is out
The United Nations have published its 2013 Millennium Development Goals Report which monitors progress in the framework of the “The Millennium Development Goals”, the United Nations initiative which stresses 8 essential goals to be achieved by 2015. The goal n°2 aims to ensure that “children everywhere, boys and girls alike, will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling”. The indicators in this area are showing that in 2011, 57 million children of primary school age were out of school, down from 102 million in 2000. However, they also show that even if progress has been made, if current trends continue, the world will not meet the goal of universal primary education by 2015.
