Across the world, more than 260 million children are currently not in school. And for those who are lucky enough to go to school, the unfortunate reality is that many of them are not actually learning. Instead, they end up receiving an education that doesn’t prepare them with the skills they need to succeed in life.
If things don’t drastically change, by 2030 over three-quarters of a billion young people in low- and middle-income countries will not be on track to gain secondary-level skills. More than 1.5 billion adults will have no education beyond primary school.
