More than 57 million children continue to be denied the right to primary education around the world, according to a latest report by UNESCO’s EFA Global Monitoring Report.
Of the 57 million out-of-school children of, 28 million boys and girls (almost 49%) will probably never enter school. A further 23% or 13 million have attended school but dropped out.
Even though the number of children out of school has fallen from 60 million in 2008 to 57 million in 2011, the benefits of this slow progress have not reached children in conflict-affected Countries – these children now make up 50% of children who are denied an education, up from 42% in 2008.
