 Global Education Digest 

Stumbling blocks to universal primary education: Repetition rates decline but dropout rates remain high

 

 Explore the key findings of the 2012 edition

 

The latest edition of the Global Education Digest reveals the urgent need to address the high numbers of children repeating grades and leaving school before completing primary or lower secondary education. New data from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) show that about 32.2 million primary pupils were held back a grade in 2010, and 31.2 million dropped out of school and may never return.

 

Entitled Opportunities Lost: The Impact of Grade Repetition and Early School Leaving, the Digest presents a wide range of UIS data and indicators to better identify the millions of children falling through the cracks in education systems and leaving school, often without being able to read or write.  The report is complemented by an info-graphic and an online interactive tool allowing users to visualise repetition and dropout rates by grade in the region and country of their choice.
