Life Hack 101: Get Education
There won’t be any deliberations while claiming that the one who opens the door of school closes the one for a prison. This high-tech era isn’t a place for the one with limited exposure to books. Still, enrolling to get formal education is a dream for millions of aspiring students. Let it be the lack of adequate resources in their geographical region or the inability to afford, the hopeless statistics reflect the dismal condition of 57 million students who are deprived of even the essence of education. Is it implying that their off-springs too are leading themselves to this bleak future? Not at all! The plans of the United Nations won’t let it happen at any cost by incorporating the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4: Quality Education.
United Nations Development Programme(UNDP), in its fourth goal, pitches for the improvement in the quality of education and endorse lifelong learning. Though the development since the early 2000s has shown 91% enrollment of understudies in primary schools, a considerable amount of developed countries are facing the challenge of making education inclusive and accessible to every corner. To cope up with these stern issues, UNDP has set up some targets to be achieved before 2030. Firstly, they long for free, equitable, and quality education. UN hence pushes the governments universally to allocate more funds in the education sector.
Secondly, they insist on the education ladder to include Early Childhood Development(ECD) and pre-primary education. UN is keen to raise this rate from 37% to exceed at least even percentage. Free and accessible technical and vocational training to both males and females is what their third target is concerned with. Targeting the most vulnerable people, including disables and extremely poor, to get hands-on books constitute the next target for UNDP.
Achieving such targets won’t be a cakewalk, but individual government measures on internal levels may do the trick not immediately but sooner.
