Obtaining a quality education is the foundation to creating sustainable development. In addition to improving quality of life, access to inclusive education can help equip locals with the tools required to develop innovative solutions to the world’s greatest problems.
Over 265 million children are currently out of school and 22% of them are of primary school age. Additionally, even the children who are attending schools are lacking basic skills in reading and math. In the past decade, major progress has been made towards increasing access to education at all levels and increasing enrollment rates in schools particularly for women and girls. Basic literacy skills have improved tremendously, yet bolder efforts are needed to make even greater strides for achieving universal education goals. For example, the world has achieved equality in primary education between girls and boys, but few countries have achieved that target at all levels of education.
The reasons for lack of quality education are due to lack of adequately trained teachers, poor conditions of schools and equity issues related to opportunities provided to rural children. For quality education to be provided to the children of impoverished families, investment is needed in educational scholarships, teacher training workshops, school building and improvement of water and electricity access to schools.

Où en est la Tunisie concernant l’ODD #4

En Tunisie, l’école est obligatoire et gratuite pour les enfants de 6 à 16 ans. Le taux net de scolarisation dépasse les 99%. Toutefois, le taux brut de scolarisation des enfants âgés de 6 à 16 ans n’est que de 82%. Les principaux défis auxquels la Tunisie fait face aujourd’hui pour ce qui concerne l’éducation et l’apprentissage sont : l’accès équitable à l’éducation préscolaire, la prévention et la réduction de l’abandon scolaire, la qualité de l’éducation et la lutte contre l’analphabétisme.
