      FYI. I haven't yet looked at this document to see how it treats
      multilingual issues, but it does focus on literacy. If Literacy is a
      neglected goasl of "Education for all," then it may be safe to say
      that multilingual literacy is a less-disscussed dimension of
      discussions of literacy. (Fwd from Bytesforall_readers)... DZO

      UNESCO Education for All - Global Monitoring Report 2006

      The Education for All - Global Monitoring Report 2006 aims to shine a
      stronger policy spotlight on the more neglected goal of literacy - a
      foundation not only for achieving EFA but, more broadly, for reaching
      the overarching goal of reducing human poverty.

      "EFA Global Monitoring Report" focuses on literacy, one of the most
      neglected of the six goals adopted in 2000 by 164 countries at the
      World Education Forum in Dakar (Senegal). The Report stresses the
      urgency of devoting increased policy attention and resources to
      literacy, emphasizing the profound benefits it confers on individuals,
      communities and nations.

      Literacy skills are essential in today's knowledge societies.
      Understandings of literacy have evolved over the past fifty years to
      reflect these increasingly complex and demanding needs. Drawing on a
      range of data sources, the Report analyses the scale of the literacy
      challenge.

      A historical overview of analysis as how different societies have made
      the transition to widespread literacy, taking stock of the broader
      social context that motivates individuals to acquire and sustain their
      literacy skills. Building literate societies calls for a threefold
      strategy of quality schooling, youth and adult programmes and the
      promotion of literate environments. This approach reflects the
      interconnected nature of the EFA goals, towards which the Report
      examines progress, notably the 2005 gender parity goal. The
      international community must support these efforts: although aid to
      basic education is on the rise, it remains far short of the needs. The
      Report highlights priority measures for the EFA goals to be achieved
      in the next ten years.
