This year’s State of the World’s Mothers report shows which countries are succeeding – and which are failing – to make progress in girls’ education. It examines the ways investments in schooling for girls can benefit society as a whole and points to programs and policies that are working, even in very poor countries. It looks at countries that have done a good job of educating girls over the past decade, and it forecasts into the future for children, identifying a group of 11 countries poised for progress in the next 10 years, thanks to investments in girls’ education.
