Globally, 132 million boys are out of school. That’s more than half of the global out of school youth population and more than the 127 million girls who are also out of school.

Leave no child behind: Global report on boys’ disengagement from education shows that boys are increasingly left behind in education. They are at greater risk of repeating grades, failing to progress and complete their education, and not learning while in school.
