Following on from an event co-hosted by the World Bank and United
Nations last week titled, "The Final Sprint to 2015 Delivering Quality
Education & Learning for All" World Bank President, Jim Yong Kim
recently posted a blog outlining the pressing need for strong and
accountable educational systems. Here he outlined five actions to be
taken to ensure learning for all children and youth around the globe.

The Final Sprint to 2015 was held in support of the UN
Secretary-General’s Global Education First Initiative, which aims to
raise the political profile of education, strengthen the global
movement to achieve quality education and generate additional and
sufficient funding through sustained advocacy efforts.
