Education is a vital tool for individual and societal advancement. Yet, equitable access to quality education remains elusive for numerous children, impeding their ability to achieve their utmost capabilities.
According to the UNESCO Institute of Statistics (UIS), approximately 264 million children and youth across the globe do not attend school.
This staggering number includes 61 million children of primary school age, 60 millions of secondary school age, and 142 millions of upper secondary school age. In other words, it is equivalent to a quarter of the population of Europe.
Barriers Impeding Education
Key factors leading to barriers to access to education:
- Gender Inequality
Girls are still more likely than boys never to attend school, perpetuating gender disparities. Due to political strife and instability, children and youth living in conflict-affected areas often have limited access to education, i.e. if they have access at all.
Additionally, barriers to upper secondary education are often based on the fact that it is not compulsory, while lower secondary and primary education is compulsory in nearly every country.
Many youth eligible for secondary education are of legal working age, leading to difficult choices between work and education. They have to work to help provide for their families.
The Power of Education
Studies have consistently proven that education is the key to overcoming poverty. By providing access to education, we can aid in breaking the cycle of poverty and empower individuals to create better futures for themselves and their communities.
