News Summary: Young see toll from recession

DOUBTFUL FUTURES: Recessions worldwide have pushed a growing number of young people out of school and out of the workforce, according to a report that warns of growing danger for the "traditional pathway from school to work or family life."

GETTING WORSE: Sixteen percent of people aged 15 to 29 are neither in school nor working, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said, and those trends are likely still rising due to more recent economic turmoil.

A BRIGHT SPOT: For the first time, young women are more likely than young men to finish high school, are outpacing men in entering university-level education, and are catching up even in vocational schools.
