UNHCR: ‘Stepping Up: Refugee Education in Crisis’ Report (August 2019)

Refugee education in crisis: More than half of the world’s school-age refugee children do not get an education.

UNHCR has released a report ‘Stepping Up: Refugee Education in Crisis’.

The report shows that as refugee children grow older, the barriers preventing them from accessing education become harder to overcome: only 63 percent of refugee children go to primary school, compared to 91 percent globally. Around the world, 84 percent of adolescents get a secondary education, while only 24 percent of refugees get the opportunity.
