Basic Goals
that education is a fundamental right for all people, women and men, of all ages, throughout our world;
that education can help ensure a safer, healthier, more prosperous and environmentally sound world, while simultaneously contributing to social, economic, and cultural progress, tolerance, and international cooperation;
that education is an indispensable key to, though not a sufficient condition for, personal and social improvement;
that traditional knowledge and indigenous cultural heritage have a value and validity in their own right and a capacity to both define and promote development;

Basic Goals (cont.)
that, overall, the current provision of education is seriously deficient and that it must be made more relevant and qualitatively improved, and made universally available;
that sound basic education is fundamental to the strengthening of higher levels of education and of scientific and technological literacy and capacity and thus to self-reliant development;
the necessity to give to present and coming generations an expanded vision of, and a renewed commitment to, basic education to address the scale and complexity of the challenge; and
the following: World Declaration on Education for All: Meeting Basic Learning Needs

EFA: An Expanded Vision
and a Renewed Commitment
The Purpose of EFA:
Article I - Meeting Basic Learning Needs
 o Every person - child, youth and adult - shall be able to benefit from educational
opportunities designed to meet their basic learning needs.

 o Basic education is more than an end in itself. It is the foundation for lifelong learning
and human development on which countries may build, systematically, further levels and types of education and training.

Article II - Shaping The Vision
 - To serve the basic learning needs of all requires more than a recommitment to basic education as it now exists. What is needed is an "expanded vision" that surpasses present resource levels, institutional structures, curricula, and conventional delivery systems while building on the best in current practices.
- The realization of an enormous potential for human progress and empowerment is contingent upon whether people can be enabled to acquire the education and the start needed to tap into the ever-expanding pool of relevant knowledge and the new means for sharing this knowledge.

Article III - Universalizing Access
and Promoting Equity
- Basic education should be provided to all children, youth and adults.
- Should be equitable and must be given the opportunity to achieve and maintain an acceptable level of learning.
- All gender stereotyping in education should be eliminated.
- The learning needs of the disabled demand special attention. Steps need to be taken to provide equal access to education to every category of disabled persons as an integral part of the education system.

Article IV - Focusing on Learning
 Whether or not expanded educational opportunities will translate into meaningful development - for an individual or for society - depends ultimately on whether people actually learn as a result of those opportunities, i.e., whether they incorporate useful knowledge, reasoning ability, skills, and values
Article V - Broadening the Means
and Scope of Basic Education
The diversity, complexity, and changing nature of basic learning needs of children, youth and adults necessitates broadening and constantly redefining the scope of basic education to include the following components:
• Learning begins at birth.
• The main delivery system for the basic education of children outside the family is primary schooling
• The basic learning needs of youth and adults are diverse and should be met through a variety of delivery systems
• All available instruments and channels of information, communications, and social action could be used to help convey essential knowledge and inform and educate people on social issues

Article VI - Enhancing the Environment
for Learning
 Learning does not take place in isolation. Societies, therefore, must ensure that all learners receive the nutrition, health care, and general physical and emotional support they need in order to participate actively in and benefit from their education.
Article VII - Strengthening
 National, regional, and local educational authorities have a unique obligation to provide basic education for all, but they cannot be expected to supply every human, financial or organizational requirement for this task. New and revitalized partnerships at all levels will be necessary.
EFA: The Requirements
Article VIII - Developing a Supportive
Policy Context
Supportive policies in the social, cultural, and economic sectors are required in order to realize the full provision and utilization of basic education for individual and societal improvement.
Article IX - Mobilizing Resources
- If the basic learning needs of all are to be met through a much broader scope of action than in the past, it will be essential to mobilize existing and new financial and human resources, public, private and voluntary.
- Special protection for basic education will be required in countries undergoing structural adjustment and facing severe external debt burdens. Today, more than ever, education must be seen as a fundamental dimension of any social, cultural, and economic design.

Article X - Strengthening Inter-
national Solidarity
Meeting basic learning needs constitutes a common and universal human responsibility. It requires international solidarity and equitable and fair economic relations in order to redress existing economic disparities. All nations have valuable knowledge and experiences to share for designing effective educational policies and programmes.
