ABSTRACT
This article presents updates on education trends as of February 2006. Developing countries are increasing the number of college graduates they produce and rapidly closing the lead that advanced countries have long established in elementary school enrollment rates, literacy rates, and other education benchmarks, according to an analysis by the Conference Board. Meanwhile, a Turkish court announced late last year that the teachers' union Egitim Sen could stay operational, after it removed from its statutes an article that advocated teaching children in their own language.
