The Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report 2017-18 which was recently published by UNESCO reveals some key findings around education across the globe. As per the report, 264 million children around the globe are denied education. UN in its SDG4 aims to provide elementary education to all the children globally by 2030 but the report says that though 83 per cent children go to school, only 45 per cent are able to complete secondary school education. RICH PEOPLE HAVE MORE ACCESS TO EARLY EDUCATION: • It shows that rich people have 5 times more access to early education than the poor. Only 66 per cent developing countries have reached the parity of elementary education • India is also amongst the countries which has not been able to provide even the basic elementary education to all our children despite the Right to Education. Meanwhile, CARE India, a leading NGO working with marginalised women and children in the area of education has shared few below points which are important to be addressed at this point of time: GEM REPORT IN INDIAN CONTEXT: The GEM Report gives the global scenario of the education. It states India is also amongst the countries which has not been able to provide even the basic elementary education. In India, the spending on education constitutes an insignificant part of the GDP. INDIA IS FAILING IN PROVIDING BASIC ELEMENTARY EDUCATION: Indian is not being able to provide basic elementary education despite having several schemes and right to education. WAS IMPLEMENTING RIGHT TO FOOD LITIGATION ABLE TO ATTRACT MORE STUDENTS? The report proves that the implementation of food litigation (similar to Indian mid-day meal policy) has been able to enroll merely 3, 50,000 girls globally. What are the better solutions to improve students' enrollment in schools? IS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 4 (SDG4) ACHIEVABLE BY 2030? About 264 million children globally do not have access to education in 2017. Possible measures to achieve education for all till 2030 in Indian context and at global level. COMPARISON BETWEEN THE FINDINGS OF WORLD BANK'S WORLD DEVELOPMENT REPORT 2018 AND UNESCO'S GEM REPORT 2017-18: GEM states need to provide access of education to children whereas WDR 2018 stresses upon the learning outcomes only.
