Shock! A UNICEF podcast highlighting the way that learning, as opposed to access or teaching, have to be at the centre of the debate on quality education if we are to prepare young people effectively for the Twenty First Century.

The panelists do allude to the reasons why the focus has not been on quality learning outcomes until now – the Millennium Development Goal Number 2 entirely focuses on getting children in to school with no mention of access to quality learning or the relevance of that learning to modern life.

Maybe we should be glad the debate is moving on, however slowly.
