4. Quality education
Goal 4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
Obtaining a quality education is the foundation for improving people’s lives and pursuing sustainable development. Major progress has been made in Latin America and the Caribbean towards increasing access to education at all levels and increasing enrolment rates in schools, particularly for women and girls. Basic literacy skills have improved tremendously, yet bolder efforts are needed to make even greater strides for achieving universal education goals. For example, equality between girls and boys in primary education has been achieved around the world, but few countries have achieved that target at all levels of education.
