Education for all: still a receding goal?

Lindsay Rae
Lindsay Rae is Senior Education Advisor with World Vision Australia. He would welcome your comments by email to lindsay.rae@worldvision.com.au.
Universal primary education is far from a new idea, but it has for good reason been dubbed ‘the ever receding goal’.
