Highlights

School may be the most influential institution in children’s lives, ranking just below family and home as the foundation on which they build their futures.

In the best cases, schools are safe and encouraging spaces where children gain the knowledge and skills they need to navigate adult life. Schools can buffer children from the risks of child labour, exploitation and child marriage. In school, a child can find shelter from violence and choose a more peaceful future.
