The 6th edition of the Global Education Monitoring report was published in March 2018 by UNESCO and UNGEI. The 2018 edition examines if commitments to gender equality in education have progressed and fullfilled.
The review’s first part examines disparities in participation and skills, in education and political
leadership positions, and in selected aspects of infrastructure and curricula. It also examines gender issues in
professional development by exploring the role of education in three other SDGs: those concerning agriculture,
health, and water and sanitation. The second part of the review analyses institutions, laws and policies to explore
ways to determine and enforce accountability for gender equality in education.
Key messages in relation to MHM included in the report are:
- MHM IS A KEY ISSUE IN SCHOOLING FOR ADOLESCENT GIRLS
- GENDER-SENSITIVE FACILITIES CAN INCREASE THE TIME GIRLS SPEND IN SCHOOL
- GENDER EQUALITY IN EDUCATION REQUIRES UNBIASED CURRICULA AND TEXTBOOKS
