U.N. Tracks Education of Youths Worldwide
People ages 15 to 24 worldwide represent the best-educated generation in history, a United Nations report concludes.
Four out of every five people in the age group are enrolled in or have completed secondary school, it says. Still, some 130 million people in that age range are illiterate.
The report also examines other factors affecting the condition of youths, such as poverty, employment, health, juvenile delinquency, and drug abuse.
