*1 Education for All

At the World Conference on Education for All, which was held in 1990, in Jomtien, Thailand, it was confirmed that every child, youth, and adult must be provided with basic education (education for acquiring necessary knowledge and skills and education needed to fulfill basic learning needs). At the World Education Forum held in 2000, in Dakar, Senegal, six specific goals were established in the area of education (Dakar Framework for Action), including "universal primary completion by 2015," and "achieving a 50 percent improvement in levels of adult literacy by 2015," with a view to achieving education for all.
