The State of the World's Children 1999: Education

About one billion people, two-thirds of them women, will enter the next century unable to read or write according to this year's UNICEF State of the World's Children report (described in the December 19, 1997 Scout Report). The report focuses on education and predicts that illiteracy levels will continue to rise, primarily because only one in four children in impoverished countries are in school. Users can download the full text of the report in sections or in its entirety in .pdf format. A summary, a special feature on educating girls, fact sheets, and several Quicktime videos are also available.
