Will Education for All be Achieved in Thailand?

In this video clip from UNESCO’s channel on youtube, Will Education for All be Achieved?, several Thai educators and UNESCO staff comment on the status of EFA in Thailand. Part of EFA is to provide universal primary education to all children as a basic human right. Thailand has been working on these issues for many years but there is still 5% which are still not being reached because they live in remote areas, are disable or have other barriers to attending school. EFA encompasses early childhood, primary and secondary education as well as higher education and adult education. The EFA goals were establish in 2000 and are expected to be reached by 2015, so in June 2010 there was an EFA Global Monitoring Report to look at the progress on these goals. Each country will be expected to make as much progress towards these goals in order to ensure that sustainable development in possible by having educated citizens.
