Summary

One in every five children — from youth to adolescence — are not in school worldwide. Youth ages 15–17 are four times more likely to be out of school than children 6–11 ,and in sub-Saharan Africa alone, one in every three children are out of school.1 Estimates show that approximately 50 percent of children out of school live in conflict areas.2 By the end of 2012 and the beginning of 2013, nearly 15.4 million refugees have fled their home countries due to conflict and now have limited educational resources.3 Just 50 percent of primary school aged refugee children are enrolled in school, and 25 percent of secondary aged refugee children are enrolled in school.4 Syria has a particularly high number of children who have dropped out of school due to conflict at 1.9 million.5 Worldwide, 130 million women and girls — from the primary to the secondary level — are not in school.6 In a study conducted with a sampling of 100 countries, when increasing the number of girls completing 12 years of education by 1 percent, economic growth rises by 0.3 percent. On a global scale, that would yield an increase of $15 trillion in revenue annually7 Show References
