The chapter opens with gains and concerns regarding education. The Millennium Development Goals regard education as essential, yet the availability of quality education remains limited in many areas. Barriers exist for children caught in conflict, working children, poor children and girls. Girls face numerous barriers including structural barriers, safety concerns and cultural expectations. Poverty is a barrier to quality education in all nations at all levels from primary to university. The issues of dropout/school leavers and poor quality education are examined around the world, including the United States. Education for All and Universal Primary Education are analyzed as paths to improve access and quality.

Keywords:   millennium development goals, conflict, girls, poverty, education for all, universal primary education (UPE)
