Abstract

Basic education is widely recognized as an essential human right and a key to poverty alleviation. Attaining the objectives of Education for All (EFA) by 2015 has become top priority among the nations of the world. For this, the financing aspect of EFA has become a key issue. The ‘Global Education Digest 2007’, released by UNESCO’s Institute for Statistics for the year 2007, focuses on the aspect of ‘financing of education’. It has tried to provide a series of indicators to compare spending patterns across countries by mapping the latest education statistics from primary to tertiary levels in more than 200 countries.
