I disagree with the statement “The Millennium Development Goals will only end up being the latest failure by the developed world to live up to undertakings they make the developing world” because they impact and change developing countries.

Extreme poverty is falling in all developing regions from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean. An example of Sub-Saharan Africa, where rates are the highest and the proportion of people living on less than $1.25 a day fell from 47% in 1990 to 24% in 2008; the number of extreme poor in developing regions dropped from over 2 billion in 1990 to less than 1.4 billion in 2008.

Girls have also benefit the most as a ratio to boys grew from 91% to 97% in 1999 and 2010 for all developing regions, although young girls with an education are 50% less likely to have children. In addition, with the success of children completing primary school a demand for secondary education is continuously growing. Although these numbers are continuously increasing in developing countries the quality of education must be considered as they can lack proficiency and leadership from teachers to teach critical thinking and improve life
