From VOA Learning English, this is the Education Report in Special English.(1)

A new United Nations report says over two hundred million young people in developing countries have not completed primary school.(2)
一个新的联合国报告说发展中国家超过 2 亿青年没有完成小学教育。

The UN says almost one hundred thirty million are in school. But they cannot read or write -- skills they need to escape from poverty.(3)
联合国说,学校均近 1 亿 3000 万。但他们不能读取或写入-技能他们需要摆脱贫困。

The report urges donors and governments to support ways for young people to get the skills they need for success.(4)

The findings are from the Education for All Global Monitoring Report by UNESCO -- the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.(5)
调查结果是从所有全球监测报告由教科文组织 — — 联合国教育、 科学及文化组织的教育。

Educators say young people need at least a primary school education and some secondary school to get secure, good-paying jobs.(6)
教育工作者说年轻人需要至少小学教育和一些中学以获得安全、 高收入的工作岗位。

But the report says that is not happening in most developing countries, including ones south of the Sahara Desert.(7)

It says about thirty three percent of young people in sub-Saharan Africa fail to complete the first few years of schooling. Millions more do not even go to secondary school.(8)
它说: 大约 33%的年轻人在撒哈拉以南非洲未能完成最初几年的学校教育。数以百万计更不要甚至去中学。

Pauline Rose is the director of the Education for All Global Monitoring Report. She says some schools are failing to provide a bridge between school and work.(9)
陈宝莲玫瑰是所有全球监测报告为教育署署长。她说: 一些学校未能提供学校之间的桥梁和工作。

She says this means that one in eight young people are unemployed. And one in four people earns very low wages.(10)
她说: 这意味着这两个年轻人是失业。四分之一的人挣工资很低。

Ms. Rose says young people need strong skills in numeracy and the ability to read and write.(11)

She says knowing how to solve problems is more important than learning by rote, a process of establishing something in memory by repeating it.(12)

She says some groups are successful in teaching the skills necessary to operate a business.(13)
她说: 一些群体是成功教学经营业务所必需的技能。

PAULINE ROSE: “Non-governmental organizations have been working to provide young people with training that gives them skills in managing their finances, in understanding how to use assets whether it’s animals, cows for example, or other types of assets… ”(14)
PAULINE ROSE:"非政府组织一直在努力为青年提供培训,使他们在其财政管理技能,了解如何使用资产无论是动物、 奶牛例如,或其他类型的资产......”

Pauline Rose says people who leave school need a second chance to get an education. In some areas, distance education – by television, computer or other methods – is helpful.(15)
陈宝莲罗斯说离开学校需要第二次的机会,来获得教育的人。在一些地区,远程教育 — — 通过电视、 电脑或其他方法 — — 是很有帮助。

PAULINE ROSE: “There are also opportunities to learn through distance education, and we find in countries like Mexico and Namibia that large numbers of young people are reached through distance education systems.”(16)
PAULINE ROSE:"也有通过远程教育学习的机会和我们找到像墨西哥和大量的年轻人则通过远程教育系统的纳米比亚国家。"

She says another popular method is the traditional apprenticeship. Young people serve as apprentices, receiving training from skilled workers.(17)
她说: 另一种常用的方法是传统学徒。青年人作为学徒,从熟练工人接受培训。

Pauline Rose says apprenticeships mainly help people who have had some primary school, but who lack job skills.(18)

She says the system can be organized so women are included, and that students are recognized for their work.(19)
