6 Achieve universal primary education

Where we are?


Target 3: Ensure that, by 2015, children everywhere, boys and girls alike, will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling

Following on from the MDG 2002 and 2005 reports, MDG 2 in its original version has already been achieved in Kazakhstan. Based on the analysis of national priorities, statistics and state education programmes, and given other countries’experiences, it was decided that there is a need for the assessment of the secondary education system as a whole, with a focus on the quality of education and the enrolment of children with special needs and students from socially vulnerable groups. The MDG 2007 report takes into account this conclusion and determined Target 3+, ensuring universal secondary education, for further monitoring of the achievement of the expanded version of MDG 2. The review demonstrated that at present, in ensuring universal secondary education, there have been considerable achievements, but there remain unresolved issues related to educational policies, quality of education, statistical support, and institutionalisation, human resources capacity and the financing of education. To overcome the existing barriers the Government and other relevant stakeholders should implement a number of strategic actions, including the renewal of educational substance, development of a uniform standard of national educational statistics and enhancement of teachers’ training.
