For years the education community was driven by access--get all children in school by 2015. But now, with the Sustainable Development Goals--the education goal (SDG4) encompasses far more than access--it looks at the quality of learning available as well. This shift--a direct outcome of the work done from 2000-2015--speaks to the knowledge that access is not enough and that we also need to focus on the inputs--teachers, textbooks, curriculum, class size, language of instruction, adequate funding and infrastructure and much more that makes education the tool to build lives, strengthen communities and support families.
