Quality education specifically entails issues such as appropriate skills development, gender parity, provision of relevant school infrastructure, equipment, educational materials and resources, scholarships or teaching force. A quality education provides resources and directs policy to ensure that each child enters school healthy and learns about and practices a healthy lifestyle; learns in an environment that is physically and emotionally safe for students and adults.
Learners who are healthy, well-nourished, and eager to participate and learn, with their families and communities supporting them in their learning;… Outcomes that include knowledge, skills, and attitudes, and are related to national goals for education and good participation in society.
“A good quality education is one that provides all learners with capabilities they require to become economically productive, develop sustainable livelihoods, contribute to peaceful and democratic societies and enhance individual well-being. The learning outcomes that are required vary according to context but at the end of the basic education cycle must include threshold levels of literacy and numeracy, basic scientific knowledge and life skills including awareness and prevention of disease. Capacity development to improve the quality of teachers and other education stakeholders is crucial throughout this process.”
Quality education is essential for organisations which act at both the international and local level. Education is a fundamental human right and therefore should be addressed by all individuals, public and private entities, governments, and civil society. Thus, organisations can guide their action to contribute to global education, provide training actions to their employees to increase their qualifications and support or participate in education initiatives in the local community.
Education is a key to escaping poverty and enabling upward socioeconomic mobility. Education aids in the reduction of inequities and the attainment of gender equality, as well as the promotion of tolerance and a more peaceful society.
