Around the world a range of factors including disability, ethnicity, religion and where people live can limit children’s access to and inclusion in education.
This report looks at exclusion from education for some of the groups. It undertakes a systematic analysis of the UK Department for International Development’s (DFID) efforts to support access to and inclusion in education of these groups.
The report includes recommendations for DFID aimed at enhancing the role it could play in advancing inclusive education for all around the world.
This report advocates that DFID dedicate adequate resources to tackling the exclusion of all marginalised groups from education in a strategic manner, in line with Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 2 to achieve universal primary education, the Education for All (EFA) goals and international human rights instruments such as the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
