The goal of the Initiative is to achieve a breakthrough in reducing the number of out-of-school children. A total of 61 million primary school-age children were out of school in 2010. This brief report presents the challenge and goal of the Out-of-School Children Initiative (OOSCI), along with a chart organized by region and country presenting statistics obtained from survey data and administrative data.
