State of Palestine country report on out-of-school children
Education is the right of every child. It empowers children to thrive. It helps promote greater civic engagement and peaceful communities
This study aims not only at understanding what barriers and bottlenecks prevent access to school, but also at taking action about it. Based on research findings, it proposes practical ways of removing these barriers to get children back to school, and to keep the children who are at risk of dropping out in school. By promoting and implementing sound policies that address exclusion, we can make a substantial and sustainable reduction in the number of out of school children.
