The biggest ever global picture of children’s well-being, education and family life has been assembled into a series of maps by the University of California, Los Angeles. “When you look at a map, everyone’s eyes go straight to where they live,” says Dr Jody Heymann, director of the university’s World Policy Analysis Centre. In the US, they might be surprised to see how unusual it is not to have a statutory right to maternity pay. Source: The maps are produced by UCLA’s World Policy Analysis Centre, Adult Labour Database www.childrenschances.org. The global maps can be accessed here, there is a very interesting section that looks at education and teachers/expenditure on education. A good summary of the main maps can be seen on the BBC News website.
