Good morning everyone present here, today I am going to give a speech on the importance of the right to education. The ability to exercise other human rights depends on having access to education, which is a fundamental human right. The goal of a high-quality education is to guarantee the growth of a well-rounded individual.
It is one of the most effective methods for bringing individuals and children who are socially excluded out of poverty and into society. According to UNESCO estimates, if all adults obtained a secondary education, the population of the poor would decrease by more than half globally. It reduces the gender gap for both women and girls. According to UN research, each additional year of education cuts the likelihood of newborn mortality by 5% to 10%.
For the right to education to be achieved, there must be equality of opportunity, unrestricted access, and monitored, enforced quality standards. All children must be able to access primary education, which must be free and required. Everybody has access to free higher education that is available to everyone based on individual capacity, and technical and vocational secondary education is widely accessible, open to all, and rapidly becoming free.
Even though it may serve a private sector demand, education is nevertheless a fundamental right for all human beings. Therefore, we should seize this chance to put in the effort necessary to alter society by offering free education to everyone since it may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us to improve the quality of life for everyone on the planet. Thank you.
