Support the right of every girl in the world to have 12 years of quality education

Last updated 3 weeks ago

We will stand up for the right of every girl in the world to have 12 years of quality education.

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.53

Our verdict

  • This policy commits the UK government to supporting the right of all girls to 12 years of quality education.
  • The UK continues to be a significant contributor to global education initiatives, and in March 2020 a new Special Envoy for Girls’ Education was appointed to accelerate developments on this policy promise.
  • There are always questions and debate around funding levels and implementation of education assistance programmes, but the range of steps taken by the government since the 2019 election demonstrates that this policy is ‘in progress’.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
