The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), says it will launch the 2017/2018 Global Monitoring Report in partnership with the Federal Government to ensure effective education policies for Nigeria.
Mrs Sandra Yachat, the Communications Officer of UNESCO, in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja, said the report would enable stakeholders focus on fostering education.
“The Global Education Monitoring Report aims at monitoring the content on the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, to ensure global trends in education, development and advocate for effective education policies for the future,’’ the statement said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that SDG 4 is targeted at ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all.
“The 2017/2018 Report, titled: Accountability in Education: Meeting our Commitments, examines accountability in education, analyses how relevant stakeholders can provide education more effectively.
“It looks into accountability mechanisms that are used to hold governments, schools, teachers, parents, the international communities, the private sector accountable for inclusive, equitable and quality education.
“By analysing which policies make accountability work or fail, which external factor impacts on their success, the report recommends factors that will help build stronger education system,” UNESCO said.
NAN reports that the Global Education Monitoring Report will be launched on April 5, in Abuja. (NAN)
