Boys’ disengagement from education
Girls have more difficulty accessing education and are more likely than boys to be out of school particularly at primary level However boys are at greater risk of repeating grades failing to progress and complete their education and not learning while in school Globally 132 million boys are out of school Thats more than half of the global outofschool youth population and more than the 127 million girls who are also out of school Ensuring access to quality education for all is not a zerosum game It is important to ensure that a focus on achieving gender parity and equality does not ignore boys Supporting boys does not mean that girls lose out and viceversa On the contrary equal education opportunities benefit both girls and boys and the broader society
