CAMPAIGN FOR EDUCATION IN UKRAINE
суббота, 8 мая 2010 г.
Around the world there are 72 million children who are missing out on school.
Where do they live?
Africa – 32 million
Asia – 27 million
Rest of the world – 13 million
Who are they?
The majority are girls (54%)
One third live in countries affected by conflict
Why are some children missing out on school?
For some the costs of going to school are too expensive – for example school fees, cost of buying school uniform, textbooks or of taking a bus to travel to school
Others have to work to earn money to support the family – there are 218 million children in developing countries who have to work
In some places there are no schools, or no qualified teachers to work in them
Other children are discriminated against because of a disability
Or they are living in countries affected by war and schools may have been damaged or destroyed
Even when children do go to school, they may find themselves in very large classes of more than 100 pupils – and may still miss out on a good education
What do governments need to do?
All countries need to make education a top priority and invest enough money in it
Richer countries should pay a fair share towards the cost of education for everyone around the world
They should also play a part in international work to make sure the promise of education for everyone is kept
Governments need to make good plans for education so that everyone – whether rich or poor, disabled or not, girl or boy, living in a situation of war or not – can get the chance to go to school
Education must be free for everyone
Governments need to build enough schools and employ enough teachers - around the world 18 million more teachers are needed
How many adults cannot read or write?
759 million adults.
Two thirds are women.
