AMMAN, April 18, 2005 – A region still dominated by the world’s greatest gender imbalances, the Middle East and North Africa have nonetheless seen sustained progress in the past two decades towards achieving gender parity in primary and secondary education, says the UNICEF’s Progress For Children Report launched globally in Geneva today.
UNICEF’s Report Card gives special focus to gender equality in education and takes as its point of reference the 2000 Dakar Conference and the Millennium Declaration goal aimed at "eliminating gender disparities in primary and secondary education by 2005, and achieving gender equality in education by 2015, with a focus on ensuring girls' full and equal access to and achievement in basic education of good quality." Regional data for the Arab world shows that in the past decade girls outperformed boys in almost every academic area and net primary school enrolments for boys and girls compare favourably with world averages.
“Girls being denied their basic right to education today will turn into women deprived of equal opportunities for development in the very near future”, he concluded.
