Report Highlights Basic Education Completion and Foundational Learning
Spotlight on basic education completion and foundational learning ... UNESCO
In recent years, there has been a growing focus on the importance of basic education and foundational learning. A new report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) highlights the progress made in this area, as well as the challenges that remain.
The report, titled “Basic Education Completion and Foundational Learning: An OECD Perspective”, looks at the performance of countries in terms of basic education completion and foundational learning. It found that the average completion rate for basic education across OECD countries was 81%. This is an improvement from the 70% rate in 2000, but still below the target of 90% set by the United Nations.
The report also found that there are significant disparities in completion rates between countries. For example, in some countries, such as Finland and Canada, completion rates are above 90%, while in others, such as Mexico and Turkey, completion rates are below 70%.
The report also looked at foundational learning, which includes skills such as literacy and numeracy. It found that the average performance across OECD countries was below the desired level. In particular, the report noted that there were significant gaps in literacy and numeracy between countries.
The report highlighted several areas where improvements could be made to improve basic education completion and foundational learning. These include increasing access to quality education, improving teaching quality, and providing more support for disadvantaged students.
Overall, the report shows that there is still much work to be done to ensure that all students have access to quality basic education and foundational learning. It is clear that governments need to take action to ensure that all students have access to quality education and that they are able to develop the skills they need to succeed in life.
