India 50 Years Behind On Education Goals: UNESCO

India will be 50 years late in meeting its global education commitments outlined under the 2030 deadline of achieving sustainable development goals unless it makes fundamental changes in the education system, says a new UNESCO report.

According to the report, India is expected to achieve universal primary education in 2050, universal lower secondary education in 2060 and universal upper secondary education in 2085, which is more than half a century late for the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) deadline.

UNESCO has called for a greater govt participation and collaboration with educational experts to tackle the issue.
