Africa Education

School children walk in the street in the Obalende area of Lagos, Nigeria, Tuesday, June 17, 2014. About 30 million primary school-aged children in sub-Saharan Africa are not in class, partially because of conflict and poverty, and progress to get them back to school has stalled, two U.N. agencies said. The situation is especially dire in West and Central Africa, which has the largest proportion of children out of school of any region in the world, said a pair of reports published Monday by UNICEF, the U.N. children’s agency, and the statistics arm of UNESCO, the U.N. cultural and education agency.
