Report Stresses Importance of Girls’ Education

12 Years of Quality Education for All Girls: A Commonwealth Perspective, a new report prepared by the University of Cambridge, provides fresh analysis and insights into the barriers to girls’ education in 53 Commonwealth countries worldwide, as well as the measures needed to dismantle those barriers. The report suggests that governments across the world need to target more funding to the early years of education, especially for girls in remote areas. The report is published to support the Platform for Girls’ Education, a group of influential Commonwealth figures set up to drive progress on achieving gender equality and a truly level playing field in education.
