The Global Education Monitoring Youth report 2022 calls on Youth to join a call for governments to #RightTheRules which will ensure that non-state actor involvement does not compromise the promises of providing 1 year of pre-primary and 12 years of primary and secondary education free for all. 

Key points from the report 

  • In low- and middle-income countires, 1 in 6 families have to save, while 1 in 12 have to borrow to pay for education
  • Families in the poorest countries are paying the most for education 
  • Public education still has many hidden costs, households account for 30% of total education spending globally and 39% in low- and lower-middle-income countries
  • Private schools and private supplementary tuition are pushing up the cost for households 
  • 1 in 4 counties does not regulate the amoutn of fees charged by private schools 
  • Public education is often not inclusive. Many public education systems fail to prevent stratification and segregation
  • Without non-state actors, the education of 350 million more children would fall on the state
  • Most people support public education with support increasing the more unequal the country
  • The Profiles Enhancing Education Review (PEER) website shows that regulatory, monitoring and enforcement capacity tends to be low where the need is high
