Policy resources: Education

Plan International works to ensure all girls have access to a quality education

Girls' Education Policy Briefing

Around the world, there are 63 million girls out of school. Less than 50 per cent of countries - and none in sub-Saharan Africa - have achieved gender parity in both primary and secondary education. 

Now is the time for global leaders to take action for girls' right to education. Policies must focus on equality and on the most marginalised girls to ensure they can access a quality education. This paper sets out the challenge for girls' education, shares Plan International UK's work and puts forward recommendations to global leaders to ensure that no girl is left behind.
