Illiteracy plagues Arab world

by AFP on Tuesday, 08 January 2008
ALARM BELLS: Report says Arab countries must focus on adult education to avoid ‘serious incidents in the evolution of societies’. (AFP)Nearly one in three people in the Arab world is illiterate, including nearly half of all women in the region, the Tunis-based Arab League Educational Cultural and Scientific Organisation (Alecso) said Monday.

Three-quarters of the 100 million people unable to read or write in the 21 Arab countries are aged between 15 and 45 years old, Alecso said in a statement.

Equally alarming, some 46.5% of women in the region are illiterate, the organisation reported, urging governments to put the fight against illiteracy at the top of their agendas.
