According to the UNESCO Education for all 2014 report, the goal of universal primary education is likely to be missed by a wide margin, with the report stating 57 million children were still out of school in 2011. The chart below shows children out of primary education country by country, as of September 2013. (You can see the full report on the UNESCO website).
