14,000. That’s the number of attacks against schools, universities, students and staff that have taken place over the past five years across 34 countries. Higher education facilities, including Iraq’s iconic university of Mosul, have been devastated and come under siege. The need to protect education in contexts of crisis and conflict has never been more urgent. Attacks against education are attacks against knowledge and the power it brings to transform lives, to build the future. As part of the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack, UNESCO is urging all countries to endorse the #SafeSchoolsDeclaration and make the #RightToEducation a reality for all.
