New target takes aim at global learning crisis


This page in:

Some 53% of children in low- and middle-income countries experience “learning poverty”—meaning they are unable to read and understand simple text by age 10. To spur progress, the World Bank set a new target to cut “learning poverty” in half by 2030. Achieving this goal would require a “near tripling” of the current rate of progress and would still leave a learning poverty rate of 27%. But under a “business as usual scenario,” learning poverty would only fall to 43% by 2030, according to a new report, Ending Learning Poverty: What will it take?

Learning poverty is high in Nigeria. The foundation I believe is from inadequate resources from government to build the primary education. The total educational system in the country has suffered from lack of financial and personnel resources. It is unfortunate that the products of this poor educational foundation are those that come back as teachers in our schools. So it is a vicious circle.

This is a serious challenge because most schools in this countries are extremely expensive making it a no go area for even the middle class. I really consider something drastic been done to effectively cause this program to affect the low income families.
