Overview

Improving access and quality of primary education is one of the mainstays of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.1 While the provision of primary education saw rapid improvement in the early 2000’s, progress has slowed down in recent years.2 One major issue that universally hinders further sustainable development in education is the high primary school dropout rate.3 Since massive improvements have been made in the provision and affordability of primary education, the pressing need for advancements in the secondary education sector has increased.4 The largest obstacles that the global community has to conquer are increasing the access and applicability of education, as well as developing the quality of teachers and curriculums.5 The World Bank has partnered with local and national governments to provide secondary education to students all around the world—regardless of poverty levels, gender, religious affiliation, and ethnicity.6


Gender parity is a serious concern in most countries around the world.7 Young girls are at a serious disadvantage when it comes to gaining access to educational opportunities, especially in severely poverty stricken countries where misogynistic cultural norms persist.8 Some of these cultural norms include families favoring male’s education over female’s when income is limited, deficient female sanitation facilities at school, and exploitative classroom environments.9  In 2011, nearly 31 million primary school aged girls and over 34 million secondary school aged girls did not enroll in school.10 Overall, countries located in Sub-Saharan Africa have highest gender gap in education.11 If more young girls were able to stay in school instead becoming ensnared in child marriages, the cycle of poverty could begin to decline.12 When adolescent girls continue their education it decreases their vulnerability to complications from early childbearing, decreases their exposure to HIV/AIDS, and builds skill sets that will serve them well later in life.13 Studies have shown  that if a young girl continues her secondary school education to completion it can translate to an increase of 25% in her wages later in life.14

Quality and Access to Education
The provision of education to children who are currently living in a war zone or in regions that are experiencing extreme armed conflict is a serious issue.1 Estimates show that around 50% of all children who are of school age but are not currently attending school live in conflict areas.2 When countries halt education opportunities for children during times of armed conflict, it can have the unintended consequence of creating a generation that is has had virtually no access to an education.3 By the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013, nearly 15.4 million refugees have fled their home countries due to conflict and now have limited educational resources.4,5 Syria has a particularly high number of children who have dropped out of school due ...See More to conflict at 1.9 million.6 Another issue that affects education access across the world is the shortage of trained teachers who are able to provide a high quality of education and curricula to students.7 There are some very low-income countries that are not able to provide adequate data for the quality of education, but in 30 of the 91 countries with adequate data less than 75% of all primary school level teachers indicated that they had received training.8 The countries with the worst indicators regarding education quality are in sub-Saharan Africa.9 Many teachers in this region have not even completed secondary levels of education.10 Show Less
