Education can accelerate progress towards the achievement of each of the proposed sustainable development goals for 2015 and beyond in a multiplicity of ways. Not only is education a basic human right but, it is vital for development. Education enables individuals, especially women, to live and aspire to healthy, meaningful, creative and resilient lives. It strengthens their voices in community, national and global affairs. It opens up new work opportunities and sources of social mobility. In short, the effects of education are significant across many development sectors. Education deserves to be a prominent cornerstone in the post- 2015 development framework. The political and financial commitments to education by countries and donors need to be secured and renewed. There is a pressing need for closer collaboration across sectors to enable these synergies to take shape and take root.
