What will it take to educate all the world’s girls?

Since 2000, the number of girls not attending school has plunged by 40% from more than 200 million worldwide. That’s pretty good progress. But with 130 million girls still not in school and millions more who go to school but don’t learn the basics, there’s still a lot more work to do. As the ONE report notes, the success of the girls’ education revolution over the next 15 years will depend on the extent to which developing countries and wealthier donor countries commit the resources needed to implement quality sector plans and proven approaches. The Education Commission has called on donor countries to mobilize a step change in their financing for global education. The Commission’s recommendations includes helping GPE increase its fund to $2 billion a year by 2020 and $4 billion a year by 2030.
