Goal 2: Achieve Universal Primary Education

Let's make sure that every boy and girl in the world can attend elementary school. This has been an issue for a while. It is lessening, but we have a while to still go. From 1999 - 2011, children out of school dropped from 106 million to 67 million. There's still over 61 million children worldwide, more than half of the kids are in Sub-Saharan Africa left to enroll into primary school and youth illiteracy is prominent in 120 million people the world. Although we're improving, not enough children are attending school. There's also fewer girls than boys attending school still. We need to make it possible for every boy and girl to attend primary school by 2015. Education is the answer to success.
