2013 gender report

Teaching & learning

More children than ever are going to school. But with the deadline for the Education for All goals less than two years away, it is clear that not a single goal will be achieved globally by 2015. This in large part because the disadvantaged have been left behind, including millions of girls and young women who will have been let down by the signatories of the Dakar Framework for Action.

New analysis for the 2013/4 EFA Global Monitoring Report vividly underlines the fact that girls and young women, especially those from the poorest families, have continued to be denied opportunities for education over the past decade.
