Apelo da UNESCO

"The global financial crisis should not serve as a justification for cuts in education funding, concluded ministers and representatives from 153 countries attending the 48th session of UNESCO’s International Conference on Education which closed on 28 November.

The theme of the week-long conference was “Inclusive Education: The way to the future”, with discussions focused on ways of providing education to the hundreds of millions of people around the world with little or no access to education.

Among those excluded from education are 75 million out-of-school children. More than half of these children are girls and one third are disabled. Most of them live in poor, isolated communities or urban slums. Many of these children are working and many belong to indigenous groups and linguistic minorities, or are living in conflict and post conflict situations." (03-12-2008 -UNESCO)
