Secondary educationrepresents a critical stage as it links the school system to the labour market. This is why it plays an important role in the creation of egalitarian societies and the enhancement of economic growth. From this perspective, this report provides a vision of the state of secondary education in terms of access, equity, quality and funding. It addresses the following questions: What has been the progress of participation in secondary education? Do boys and girls have the same chances of completing secondary education? Do governments invest enough in secondary education?
