Next week in Norway, world leaders will gather to talk about the unfinished education agenda: few developing countries have achieved the Millennium Development Goal of universal primary schooling.
Even if millions more children are in school now than in 2000 when the MDGs were adopted, up to 250 million children still don't make it to Grade 4 or haven’t learned the basics of reading and simple math by the time they reach grade 4.
Oslo will focus on the four themes of financing education, educating girls, quality of learning, and education in emergencies and crises.
The Oslo summit will pave the way for the following week’s 3rd international Financing for Development conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
