UNESCO Institute of Statistics Data Release September 2018
The UNESCO Institute of Statistics (UIS) has just issued a major release of education data – including 32 SDG 4 indicators and the updating of our global education database for the school year ending in 2017.
Please visit the UIS website for more. We would greatly appreciate your help in promoting the new data on your respective websites, social media channels, newsletters and other channels, including your partner networks.
Here are some resources:
· Web article available in English and French at:
New data from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) show that there are still about 262 million – or one out of every five – children, adolescents and youth between the ages of 6 and 17 out of school. The figure rises to one in three children out of school in low- and lower-middle-income countries.
· Social media packages on the data release and out-of-school children (source files for the infographics are available if you need them)
· Blog on out-of-school children will go live on Thursday, 27 September:https://www.globalpartnership.org/blog/no-time-lose-road-universal-primary-and-secondary-educatio
On Monday, we will also be issuing a press release on new data on bullying. It will be coming out of UNESCO HQ in six languages. I will send you the social media package and relevant links in the next 48 hours or so.
Once again, we greatly appreciate your support in promoting the new data among your networks. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or questions.
