The World Bank calls it The Global Learning Crisis.

There are still too many children out of school, especially in countries affected by conflict and humanitarian emergencies.

But for the first time in history, most non-learners are actually to be found in school. Every day, thousands of children all over the world make their way to classrooms where they fail to learn anything because the quality of the education they receive is so poor.

It has to change.


Many more children are in school.

According to the World Bank, 100 million more children in Africa were enrolled in primary school in 2014 compared to 1984.

But too many are not learning.

In Sierra Leone and Liberia, 95% of young adult women who have completed primary school still can't read a simple sentence.
