Education & Education Reform

Women’s education is one of the most powerful tools available for alleviating poverty, strengthening democratic governance and advancing sustainable development. Research shows investments in educating girls and women correlate with health improvements, including decreased infant mortality, better child nutrition and increased family income. Despite progress, many more boys than girls attend secondary school and post-secondary school in some parts of the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. More effort needs to be invested in making quality education available to all people around the globe: girls and boys, women and men, from pre-school to adult education.
