As we enter 2020, with 10 years left on the clock before the SDG deadline, a lot of work is still needed to assure quality education for all.
Education is a powerful tool to improve societies at a larger scale, strengthen democracies and to fight inequality. However, all too often children’s educational achievement depends on their parents’ income.
