U.N. Report Says Higher Education Key to Stable Employment.

UNITED NATIONS, Safar 24, 1436, Dec. 16, 2014, SPA -- A U.N. report said Thursday that higher education is a prerequisite for millions of youth in the developing world who hope to find a decent, "non-vulnerable" job.

The International Labor Organization (ILO) study surveyed 28 countries worldwide and demonstrated that having a high level of education "serves as a fairly dependable guarantee" towards securing a formal job.

"The report confirms the role of education in shaping labor market outcomes of young people," Azita Berar Awad, director of the employment policy department of the ILO, said in a statement. "It also highlights the need for more investments in quality education, from primary through academic levels."
