At Jomtien, Thailand, the World Conference on Education for All, a significant event in the history of education policy formation, took place in March 1990. The main sponsors of the conference were the World Bank; the United Nations Development Program (UNDP); United National Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). The conference was attended by more than 1,500 people, including 900 delegates, 200 observers, and 190 press correspondents. The conference adopted a "World Declaration on Education for All" and a "Framework for Action." The declaration called for a renewed purpose, an expanded vision and commitment, and identified requirements for education for all. The conference set the scene for a new agenda in education policy formulation for the 1990s.
