INEE’s Response to the UN’s Report on the Post-2015 Development Agenda
Lori Heninger, INEE Director
On 30 May, the UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda released its report. The 27 member panel met multiple times over the past year, and their report provides recommendations on advancing international development beyond 2015. INEE welcomes this report, and congratulates the High-Level Panel for the forward-looking nature of the final document, specifically for the inclusion of education both in the body of the report, and as one of the 11 Universal Goals and National Targets.
The report links education to sustainability, and connects education and conflict, particularly through citing the 28 million of out-of-school children in situations of conflict. It also cites the need to move beyond access to primary education, and to ensure the completion of a full course of primary and early secondary education for all children and youth regardless of circumstance.
