Class of 2007 School Report Card

Published: 30 April 2007

Each year, GCE holds donor governments to account for their promises on education, using this ‘School Report’ as the method to benchmark their performance. In 2007, campaigners and learners, parents and children, were expecting to see rich nations race for the finishing line of 2015 – the date set by the world to achieve a range of vital targets in education.

Yet this report shows that donors have slammed the brakes on progress, devastating the expectations of those who dared to dream that no future generation would have to live without the light and hope of education in their lives. This means millions of children have missed their chance to go to school due to the poor performance of the Class of 2007.
