On 7 April 2022, UNESCO in collaboration with the Commonwealth Secretariat and Promundo will host a webinar in support of the launch of “Leave No Child Behind: The Global Report on Boys’ Disengagement from Education”.

The report is groundbreaking in its scope and shows that, in many countries, boys are at greater risk than girls of repeating grades, failing to complete different education levels, and having poorer learning outcomes. No less than 132 million boys are currently out of school.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from different stakeholders in two panel discussions - the first will cover challenges faced by boys in regional and selected country contexts while the second will focus on policy responses and good practices to re-engage boys in education.
