'Urgent Appeal' from the World Bank to Lebanon: Education is in Danger

In a new report released today, the World Bank called for Lebanon to urgently embark on a comprehensive reform agenda that refocuses the education sector around students and prioritizes improving the quality of education for all. The report pointed out that low levels of learning and a mismatch between skills and labor market needs jeopardize the future of the rising generations in Lebanon, which reveals the urgent need to increase and better target investments in the sector.
