What Works in Girls' Education

What works in Girls’ Education


Every girl deserves a high-quality education. And yet, in virtually every nation resources are scarce and those arguing for a greater investment in girls' education must come to the table with not only a soft heart but also hard-headed evidence.

In the new book from the Center for Universal Education at Brookings, What Works in Girls' Education, authors Gene Sperling and Rebecca Winthrop have collected a comprehensive body of evidence on why and how to improve education for girls around the world. Drawing on that work, these factsheets highlight the key pieces of evidence.
