All societies are undermined without quality schooling for all said the President of the UN General Assembly (PGA), in an interview just ahead of the International Day of Education.

Tijjani Muhammad-Bande has convened a high-level meeting to mark the day on Friday, and he firmly believes education “helps strengthen self-esteem”.

The leading Nigerian academic and diplomat told Liz Scaffidi that nobody should be left without access to a quality education in the classroom.
