According to the 2018 World Development Report (WDR), many lower-income countries have made progress in getting children into the classroom, which has led to more children worldwide now being in school.

While significantly greater numbers of children are now attending school, there has been little investment in the education infrastructure needed to teach this pupil explosion, such as building schools, providing resources, and – of course – training better and more teachers.

The global pandemic has far-reaching consequences that may jeopardise hard-won gains made in improving global education. (UN)
