1. It’s The International Day of the Girl Child today. Here’s an UKFIET blog post which usefully brings together a number of the posts on the UKFIET blog on girl’s education https://www.ukfiet.org/2022/international-day-of-the-girl-2022/

Lots of other topics covered here https://www.ukfiet.org/blog/

2. The OECD have just published their 2022 ‘Education at a Glance’ report. You can search it online here https://www.oecd-ilibrary.org/education/education-at-a-glance-2022_3197152b-en and there’s a (big) PDF copy of the whole report below, plus a copy of the Executive Summary only.

It’s not yet very comprehensive geographically: pretty much all the European countries are there and there’s good representation from The Americas (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica & Mexico), but coverage of the rest of the world is patchy.

3. The French writer Annie Ernaux just won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Here’s two articles about her from The New York Times (that I think I’m allowed to share): an interview https://tinyurl.com/3najccbt and a collection of articles and commentary which includes – scroll halfway down – a guide to her most essential work https://tinyurl.com/yckjzx2m

Someone please let me know that these links are working?

4. And, finally, an engaging, short and sad (25”) documentary film from The Guardian about the mining boom in Mongolia, Lady of the Gobi https://www.theguardian.com/world/ng-interactive/2022/sep/29/lady-of-the-gobi-trucking-coal-across-the-desert-to-china
