New paper produced with UIS reveals how far we have to go before no child is out of school
263 million children are still not in school
A new policy paper published by the GEM Report and the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) shows that there are 263 million children, adolescents and youth around the world who are currently not in school. The total covers 61 million children of primary school age, 60 million of lower secondary school age, and includes the first ever estimate of those of upper secondary school age at 142 million. The paper also shows that 62 million of the 263 million out of school live in conflict affected areas.
The paper contains new GEM Report analysis looking behind the global and regional averages to see how gender and poverty are still creating barriers for access to school.
