Today’s economies need workers with knowledge and skills acquired at secondary-school level. However, many countries are struggling to cope with the increased demand for secondary education.

The 2011 edition of the Global Education Digest, published by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, presents a wide range of indicators on the extent to which girls and boys are enrolling in and completing secondary education. To enrich policy debates, the report also examines the human and financial resources that go into this level of education.
