PROGRESS IN GETTING ALL CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS INTO SCHOOL IS BEING HELD BACK BY CONFLICT

 

- 34 million out-of-school children and adolescents live in conflict countries. 
- Children in conflict countries are two times more likely to be out of school than their peers elsewhere.
- Adolescents in conflict countries are two thirds more likely to be out of school than their peers elsewhere.
- Children in conflict countries are 30% less likely to complete primary school and half as likely to complete lower secondary school.
- Girls are almost two and a half times more likely to be out of school if they live in a conflict country than those elsewhere.
- Adolescent girls are almost 90% more likely to be out of secondary school than young women elsewhere.
- The poorest children in conflict countries are twice as likely to be out of school as the poorest elsewhere.
