Unemployment has hit the world big time. With India fighting the menace of unemployment, a recent report from the United Nation's messenger for education, Gordon Brown states that by 2030 more than 800 million students will be unemployed despite graduating from the schools.800 million is a terrifying number alone when viewed in relation to the unemployment but the worst part is, this number also represents world's half of the 1.6 billion children.
Shortage of skilled workers
- Brown also said that there are 260 million children who are out of school and have been neglected and 40 million additional who are functionally illiterate.
- If this situation continues then there lack of skilled workers will lead to bleak future.
- Brown said that UN's goal is to ensure quality education for the every child but if actions are not taken now to ensure this than there will be no quality education for children by 2030, 2050 or even by 2100.
Pointing on the lack of education and skilled manpower he also laid the proposal for setting an international finance facility for the education.
Words of the Gordon Brown
"We're effectively trying to double the education aid. Millions of children will remain on the streets rather than in school if the funding is not found," said Brown
Commenting on the present scenario he said that children, especially girls, in conflict zones will suffer the terrible blow of loss of education.
