Global funding for education is declining. Early years provision is particularly underfunded, despite the clear benefits it brings to subsequent education efforts. Governments and donors are not prioritising education investment. Most do not track the allocation of funding by educational levels, let alone disaggregate expenditure linked to SDG targets. The picture is equally concerning regarding humanitarian aid for education, where severe funding deficiencies impact disproportionately on children with disabilities.
