The Future is Now. Summary of Full Report

Every child has the right to education. We have seen a big drop in the number of primary-age children who cannot go to school – between 2006 and 2010 the global figure fell from 115 million to 72 million.
That is an impressive achievement, but there’s still a long, long way to go – especially for children living in countries affected by conflict. The painful reality is that more than half of the children without a school to go to live in countries where conflict pushes the dream of education farther beyond their reach – that’s 39 million children. How can we help these hardest-to-reach children get an education?
