Education for all is a movement to provide education to all children and youth too. By UNESCO this movement was launched in the world education conference. In this conference, the speakers pressurise to reduce the illiteracy and universalize the primary education.
After some years, good results were seen as in many countries education for all goal was achieved. Six key goals were identified in meeting the learning needs of children.
UNESCO, civil agencies, government, development agencies and media are all the partners that are working to achieve the goal of education for all.
Goals of the education for all:
Care and education for the children:
In this goal care and education for the young children were given the most preference. They will support the kids and their families and also help children in all areas including physically, socially and emotionally. Focus especially on particularly who are vulnerable, such as children living in the poor conditions, the orphans and minorities and also the girls.
Free primary education for all:
Their second goal was to provide people with free primary education for all. The primary education will be free of charge, and it would be compulsory for all to attend schools at primary level. Children belonging from the minorities would be given special attention because they are facing difficult circumstances.
After some years increase in literacy rate was seen. The number of children going to school was increased. Education for all movement main goal to educate them was given special attention, and that result good for the movement.
The third goal of education for all was to promote the learning skills in children. They emphasis on the learning needs of the people. In this goal equal amount of learning programs were offered to boys and girls. They think that government was not giving priority to adults in learning new skills. To live successful life skills are needed. Special budgets should be announced for this purpose. The main aim of the movement was to make the youth skilful.
Increase the literacy rate:
One of their goals was to increase the literacy in adults. They want to increase it about 50 percent, than before. They said women have right to get an education, so special attention was given to them. Opportunities were given to adults for learning.
Equality between the genders:
The fifth goal was the gender equality in the education. An equal number of girls and boys should be enrolled in primary and secondary education. The boys and girls should have an equal opportunity to learn and have benefits of education.
The Last goal of education for all is to give quality education. They want to improve the education system. Each person can learn skills that are necessary for a successful life. A quality education can change the person’s condition.
These were the six goals of education for all movement. This movement aims to educate each person so that they can live a good life.
