The article reports on the report "Global Monitoring Report 2009," by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, which found that aid for basic education in developing countries during the year 2006 to 2007 declined by almost 22%. The decline in world aid for education indicates that countries won't meet the goals that the international community agreed to at a meeting in Dakar, Senegal in 2000 that all children would have access to primary education by the year 2015.
