Background
Despite significant progress in education in the region, millions of children remain out of school. Many children who are in school are not learning well and do not get the skills needed to get decent jobs. Without this major effort, countries will not meet the Millennium Development Goal for universal education by the 2015 target year and will not close the gaps in quality education for the excluded children.
