Expanding Opportunities and Building Competencies for Young People a New Agenda for Secondary Education
Demand for secondary education is soaring worldwide owing to the confluence of at least three factors. First, as more countries achieve universal primary schooling, demand for education is moving to higher levels of the education system, and the world is witnessing an explosion of individual and family aspirations for secondary education. Second, the largestever cohort of young people is clearly going to make a difference for the future of many countries, especially in the developing world. The way to turn what many perceive as a global risk into a global opportunity is by building and harnessing the values, attitudes, and skills of young people through quality secondary education, thus ensuring that they will become active and productive citizens of their communities. Third, economies increasingly need a more sophisticated labor force equipped with competencies, knowledge, and workplace skills that cannot be developed only in primary school or in low-quality secondary school programs. In short, provision of secondary education of good quality is seen as a crucial tool for generating the opportunities and benefits of social and economic development.
