Tracking changes in girls' education

A great chart and article from The Economist, describing changes (mostly improvement) in educational enrollment rates for girls at the primary, secondary, and tertiary (college and university). The article above, along with this companion, provide a balanced picture as to the state of gender inequality in education as it pertains to development and human rights. Unfortunately, neither article provides direct links to UN data or reports. Nevertheless, reading either or both articles should get your neurons firing.

Please feel free to engage in a See (what do you see?) - Think (what do you think about what you see?) - Wonder (what does this make you wonder?) routine on the chart above. Reply to this post with your ideas.
