    The Resolution expresses deep concern with the fact that some one hundred and twenty million children, two thirds of girls, have no access to education. It welcomes the Dakar Framework for Action adopted at the World Education Forum held in Dakar in April 2000, and the goals agreed upon at its adoption. The Resolution calls upon all States to give full effect to the right to education, to guarantee that this right is recognized and exercized without discrimination of any kind and to ensure progressively and on the basis of equal opportunity that primary education is compulsory, accessible and available free to all. It also calls upon States to take all necessary legislative measures to realize the right to education for all.

    The UN Commission on Human Rights is assisted in this work by the Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights, a number of working groups and a network of individual experts, representatives and rapporteurs mandated to report to it on specific issues.

    In its resolution 1997/7 of 1997, the Sub­-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights decided to analyse the contents of the right to education. It also adopted a resolution on the realization of the right to education, including education in human rights (Resolution 1999/11) on 25 August 1999.
