In 1990 participants at the World Conference on Education for All, in Jomtien, Thailand, articulated the importance of providing primary education “for all children and massively reducing adult illiteracy by the end of the decade”. By 2000, some of these goals were reached, but the World Education Forum (sponsored by UNESCO) continues to work towards achieving all of these goals. The website offered here includes sections that answer a number of FAQ’s about the initiative and provide material on how each country involved in this process is working towards these goals. For persons who might be interested in reading about the more recent achievements of the Education For All initiative, there is also a section titled “EFA Monitoring” which includes reports from 2002, 2003/2004, and 2005. Given the complexity of this global undertaking, visitors should not be surprised to find that there is also copious information on the global co-ordination efforts of the EFA initiative here as well.
