Education for All (EFA)

What can governments do?

Start by making education a priority. Along with abolishing school fees, they must build classrooms, introduce mother-tongue teaching, organize community campaigns, set up scholarships to encourage girls’ schooling and mobilize community and religious leaders around education. Above all, they should hire, train and retain teachers, as an additional 10.3 million of them will be needed to reach the 2015 international targets. Where there’s a will, there’s a way – and that applies to governments as well as individuals.
