2 115 Million Children Worldwide, Nearly 1 in 2 Children in West and Central Africa, Out of School. UNICEF/UNESCO, Children Out of School, 2006

3 Achieve Universal Primary Education: Ensure that, by 2015, children everywhere, boys and girls alike, will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling. Second United Nations Millennium Development Goal

4 47 Countries will not attain the goal of universal school enrollment before almost the middle of the next century. V. Muñoz Villalobos Special Rapporteur to ECOSOC on the Right to Education, 2006

5 In Kenya in 2003, the new government announced on a Friday that as of the following Monday, schools would be free. In Nairobi this led to an average pupil-teacher ratio of Policy Workshop Report, Free to Learn: A Rights Based Approach to Universal Primary Education in Kenya Princeton University, 2006

6 Putting more kids into an impoverished empty environment does not advance education. In that instance, increasing quality and holding access constant is the only reasonable alternative. Dr Steve Heyneman, Vanderbilt University and the World Bank

7 Access has priority. Always. Dr Gita Steiner-Khamsi, Teachers College, Columbia University Its better to have children in school than out of school, even if you cant guarantee high quality education right away. Patrick Fine Academy for Educational Development
