The Sustainable Development Goals call for universal access to primary school by the year 2030, but a number of poor countries won’t meet that goal until 2100. This report shows that education will not deliver its full potential unless participation rates increase dramatically and sustainable development guides education system reform. It also warns of the destructive impact that climate change, conflict, unsustainable consumption and the increasing gap between rich and poor have on education. A huge transformation is needed if we are to create sustainable futures for all.
