Goal Four aims to ensure access to and completion of quality education for all children and youth. Highlights of the baseline status of the region are based on analysis of indicators on access to education, for which data quality and availability are generally good and on limited data on quality of education. The available data shows that the Asia and Pacific region has a long way to go to improve access and quality of education for all. The region has made tremendous progress in expanding educational opportunities at various levels of schooling, but many countries are yet to provide free and compulsory pre-primary education of good quality. Relatively large numbers of youths in some countries are excluded from schooling, and the majority of those in school do not possess minimum proficiency in reading, mathematical and scientific literacy.
