The UK Government welcomes the recommendations contained within the High Level Panel’s report, which are bold and inspiring but also practical and realistic.

We particularly welcome the prominence of education in the report and the goal on illustrative education, which builds on Millennium Development Goal 2. Access to good quality basic education for all should remain the focus post-2015, but with a stronger emphasis on gender equality, learning outcomes and transition to post-primary education.
