Overview

Education is a key item on the agenda of this year’s G7. 125 million children are out of school, and 880 million people can neither read nor write. Governments agree it is a global crisis. They met in Senegal two months ago and promised a renewed effort to provide good quality basic education for all by 2015, including a ‘global initiative’ to mobilize resources. But is this more than hot air? Oxfam is calling on the G8 to launch a Global Action Plan for education and back it with the necessary funds.
