One of the eight Millennium Development Goals set by the United Nations is Universal Primary Education. Barely a year before the target date of 2015 set for the realisation of these goals, the research reported in this article first took stock of the global position with regard to the attainment of this ideal. The persisting elusion of the realisation of the goal of providing universal primary education is then looked at through, among others, the prism of social justice theory. With global policy statements already focusing on the post-2015 world, the article culminates in a vision of and a strategy for creating sustained learning environments which could contribute to the attainment of Universal Primary Education.
