Today, almost 75 million children across the world are prevented from going to school each day. As of 2015, 164 states were parties to the Covenant.The right to education also includes a responsibility to provide basic education for individuals who have not completed primary education from the school and college levels. In addition to these access to education provisions, the right to education encompasses the obligations of the students to avoid discrimination at all levels of the educational system, to set minimum standards of education and to improve the quality of education.
