The books in this series are written primarily for two types of clientele: those engaged in educational planning and administration, in developing as well as developed countries; and those, such as senior government officials and policy-makers, seeking a more general understanding of educational planning and how it relates to national development. They are intended to be of use either for private study or in formal training programmes.
Educational access equity and development: Planning to make rights realities
Universal access to learning through basic education lies at the heart of development. Despite consistent efforts over 25 years, more than 250 million children still fail to complete a full cycle of basic education successfully. The UN Sustainable Development Goals reaffirm commitment to the rights of all children to education. This book presents key concepts for planning basic education through to 2030, drawing attention to different zones of exclusion and inclusion. The author develops an expanded vision of access that includes learning, charts the dynamics of education system development, and identifies clusters of countries with different challenges. This book provides new frameworks for planning for those who wish to make the right to education a global reality.
