The International Consultative Forum on Education for All, the global mechanism established to monitor Jomtien follow-up action, at its first meeting (Paris, 1991) focussed its discussion on the prospects for providing universal access to primary education. Even in the essentially quantitative context of that discussion, the interconnectedness of quality and quantity in educational provision was evident : simply stated, good quality education attracts and retains learners in greater numbers. At its second meeting (New Delhi, 1993), the Forum focussed its deliberations on quality education for all, reflecting the widespread dissatisfaction over the irrelevance and poor quality of much basic education today, as well as the concern that expansion of basic education provision must not, and need not, lead to a lower quality of learning. The Forum’s two reports called Status and Trends (1993 and 1994) explain the status and trends of education in different countries and the correlation between education and development. The Forum’s brochure presented at the Copenhagen’s World Summit for Social Development explains how basic education contributes to human development. The texts of World Declaration on Education For All and the Framework For Action to Meet Basic Learning Needs informs the world’s commitment to provide basic education to all.
