Make it Right: Ending the Crisis in Girl’s Education

Make it Right: Ending the Crisis in Girl’s Education outlines how – despite overall increases in global and national aggregate enrolments and gender parity – girls still face large challenges in effectively completing primary education and continuing through the school cycle successfully. By using a rights-based framework to assess the availability of education the report highlights the legal, policy, and budget frameworks which are needed to guarantee the right to education, especially for girls. The rights-based framework of this report is based on acceptability, accessibility, and adaptability for the special needs of gender-based marginalization.

Based on eight indicators of education availability, reflecting how well girls are able to access school and survive through all levels of education, the report takes a stark look at the systemic discrimination against girls both in and out of the classroom. The report then groups countries according to four categories on the basis of their relative progress made in making girls’ education available: ‘strong performers,’ ‘middle performers,’ ‘weak performers,’ or ‘failing.’ Download the report here.
