About the World Education Convention 2020

Education and its applications are linked with every aspect of development. A strong education system widens the prospects of opportunities, improves health and bolsters the resilience of communities. According to Global Partnership for Education, 420 million people would be lifted out of poverty with a secondary education, thus reducing the number of poor worldwide by more than half. If every girl worldwide received 12 years of quality education, lifetime earnings for women could increase by $15 trillion to $30 trillion globally!

While the world has about 7.5 billion population (current US Census Bureau world population estimate in June 2019), about 260 million children and youth were out of school in 2018. According to UNICEF, an estimated 617 million children and adolescents around the world are unable to reach minimum proficiency levels in reading and mathematics – even though two thirds of them are in school. In conflict zones, 27 million children are out of school.
