Nature of Setting

The broad domain of education has within it several big problems worth addressing.  The nature of this domain differs by income levels of countries (low income, lower-middle income, upper-middle income, high income).  Within countries, there is often significant variance by geography (regions, urban vs. rural, suburb vs. inner city), men vs. women and boys vs. girls, levels of education (primary, secondary and high school, higher education).  In low and middle income countries, particularly, there is also the issue of adult illiteracy.  The sources of information below have data and discussions useful for discovering big problems in education that matter to you.
