Helping girls stay in school should be Commonwealth's development priority
The Platform for Girls’ Education, a group of government representatives and heads of leading multilateral agencies like GPE, commissioned a report that found that though great progress has been made towards gender parity in education, girls still remain disadvantaged in a large number of the Commonwealth countries.
The report, published by Cambridge University, suggests that there is a compelling case for targeted efforts to help girls stay in school, especially in remote rural areas and during the early years of education.
