Improving education has far reaching socio-economic benefits. It is associated with increases in individual income, smaller families, and improved health and nutrition. Improved education can also play a central role in reducing social inequalities, by decreasing income disparities and promoting participation in society and the political system of those individuals who are most disadvantaged.
The link between education and poverty reduction is reflected in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), where two out of the eight goals are directed at improved primary and secondary education. However, developing countries face compelling constraints in achieving universal primary completion, expanding access to secondary education, and ensuring the balanced development of the education sector overall.
