According to a new report from the World Bank, the quality of education in the Arab world is falling behind other regions and needs urgent reform.

The report states that Arab countries need to make education their top priority in order to meet the needs of a young population and rapidly-expanding labour market.

It cites low literacy rates and poor rates of enrolment compared to other parts of the world such as Asia and Latin America.
