Did you know? There are just as many boys out of school as girls

While girls are less likely to enter school in the first place in many countries, a GEM Report paper, Don’t forget the boys, shows that boys are at a higher risk globally of not progressing and completing their education. They also perform less well in reading assessments worldwide. This blog, Did you know? There are just as many boys out of school as girls, explores this phenomenon and argues that we won’t achieve gender equality in education if we ignore one half of the story.
