Globally, half of students aged 13-15 experience peer-to-peer violence in and around school.

In the world's richest countries, some children do worse at school than others because of circumstances beyond their control, such as where they were born, the language they speak or their parents' occupations.

Dooley, Tara – UNICEF, 2017
Whether a migrant, refugee or internally displaced, a child is a child. Every child has the right to an education. Yet many of the 50 million uprooted children in the world are in desperate need of education--not "despite" being uprooted from their homes, but "because" they are uprooted from their homes. Without education, how…

Britto, Pia Rebello – UNICEF, 2017
The science is clear: A child's brain is built, not born. The process begins before birth and involves a complex interplay of neural connections that are shaped by experience and environment.

Every day, girls and boys around the world face many forms of physical, sexual and psychological violence in and around schools.
