Education for the Future Tyler tam


Universal education has been on the rise during the last couple decades. However, a lack of government funding, untrained teachers, inadequate supplies, and being the "wrong" gender has put up set up obstacles to achieve universal education.

Lack of Government Funding

Total aid delivered for basic education has undergone a 16% reduction between 2009 and 2012.

The 59 developing countries that are GPE partners face a funding shortage of $34 billion over the next four years for primary and secondary education.

Untrained Teachers

Many of the teachers that are currently working world-wide are untrained, causing for students to fail when they enter into higher education.

5.1 million trained teachers are needed to achieve universal lower secondary education by 2030.

Inadequate Materials√Āfrica

Outdated and falling apart, textbooks are often shared by six or more students in many parts of the world.

In Cameroon, there are 11 primary school students for every reading textbook and 13 for every mathematics textbook

Being Born a woman

Over 100 million young women living in developing countries are unable to read a single sentence.

At least one in five adolescent girls around the world is denied an education by the daily realities of poverty, conflict and discrimination.
