Progress for Children: A Report Card on Primary Education and Gender Parity
UNICEF, 2005 - Education, Primary - 32 pages

Progress for Children reports on where the world stands in its commitment to eliminate gender disparity in education by 2005: the first Millennium Development target agreed to by the international community and key to achieving the goal of universal primary education by 2015.
