Abstract
The objectives of this policy note are twofold: first, take stock of where
Bangladesh stands in terms of achieving the Education For All (EFA) goals; and second,
suggest policy recommendations that could help Bangladesh to meet the EFA goals by 2015.
Among the six EFA goals as shown in the box below, the policy note will focus mainly on: (i)
universal primary enrollment for all children; (ii) universal primary completion; (iii) gender parity
in education; (iv) adult literacy; and (v) quality of education. This is because these areas can be
meaningfully analyzed with reasonably reliable information from various sources.
