Take a look at the latest infographic measuring female education trends in Southeast Asia with particular emphasis on Cambodia and Laos. As you will see, most of the ASEAN nations perform quite well when it comes to education girls. The only exceptions are Cambodia and Laos. For both nations there are numerous roadblocks to education including a lack of resources and embedded cultural values favoring sons over daughters.
ASEAN legislative bodies have addressed the issue and have taken strides to combat low rates in these countries. Hopefully the future will bring more promising figures.
