Abstract [en]

Education International (EI) is a world-wide trade union organisation of education personnel, whose 26 million members represent all sectors of education from early childhood education to university. As an organisation of teachers EI has a strong interest in the implementation and monitoring of the rights of children, specifically the right to education. Through its contacts with international intergovernmental organisations such as UNESCO, ILO and the World Bank, EI is following the development in the education sector world wide and promoting education for all. During recent years EI has been involved in two important campaigns related to children�s rights. EI has been campaigning against child labour with the objective of eliminating child labour and promoting education for all. This campaign has also been co-ordinated with other organisations through co-operation within the Global March against Child Labour. One important achievement of the campaign has been the adoption of the ILO Convention No. 182 which contains clear references to the importance of providing free basic education. EI has launched the Global Campaign for Education together with Action Aid and Oxfam International in partnership with civil society networks throughout the South and the Global March. Since 2000 the Global Campaign for Education has organised every year a Global Action Week to highlight the need of education for all and to put pressure on governments and international donor agencies. EI believes there is an urgent need to increase the efforts world wide to improve enrolment figures and to improve the quality of education. This can only be done through increased investment in education and through public education. To improve enrolment and the quality of education, it is necessary to improve the status of teachers.
