Education aid is far too low to meet Education targets 2015-2030. International aid remains below 2010 levels. There is an annual finance gap of $39 billion to provide 12 years of quality education for all by 2030. To fill this gap, donor countries must increase their aid to education by 600%. In reality, education aid priority is low priority and half of donor decreased their aid from 2008-2013.
Aid support depends on where a child is born. From $4 in Chad to $41 in Afghanistan over 2011-2013.
Aid is not going where it is needed most. In 2013, a third of total aid is the amount that poorest countries receive for basic education.
In 2013, 1 of 11 Children age 6-11 is out of school or 59 million. 30 million lives in sub-Saharan Africa. Compare with 2010, it has 2.4 million less. 1 of 6 adolescents age 12-15 is out of school (65 million) and this number is rising.
Girls are the first to be excluded. 24 million children in sub-Saharan Africa never set foot in a classroom. 16.7 million are girls.
In Syria, 2 years of conflict erased 15 years of progress in education.
