Sédrick de Carvalho lembra que muitas pessoas têm de pagar subornos “para poderem inscrever os filhos na escola”. Em causa está uma mudança de mentalidades que nem todos acreditam que seja possível com o MPLA no poder. “O problema dos angolanos é serem muito resilientes, aprenderam a viver na miséria absoluta. A mandar os filhos para a escola com uma lata para se sentarem por não haver cadeiras”, descreve Emanuel Lopes.

In Kyangwali refugee Camp in Hoima District, Western Uganda is COBURWAS Primary School, a refugee school that out performs government and other private schools in Uganda at the national exams (Uganda Primary school leaving Examinations). The school whose students are mostly refugees living in Uganda was set up by Joseph Munyambanza born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and colleagues who Fled to Uganda when they were still young (he was six).
A big worry in education these days is that easier access to schooling has come at the expense of the quality of learning. One example is an investigation of test scores at some 200 American colleges by The Wall Street Journal. The results reflect a rising global concern that students are learning far too little even as access to education expands.
The crisis in Syria has displaced around 1.4 million children and teenagers from their homes. An estimated 900,000 of them are not in school.
Historically, in conflict zones, education has taken a backseat to immediate needs like food, shelter and medical care. But more recently, there has been a movement in the international aid community to provide better “education in emergencies.”
Many private companies and nonprofits are stepping up to do just this — but their efforts are not always well balanced or well coordinated, a new report claims.
“There used to be more room,” says Edin Sinanović, the young founder of Refugees Foundation, the small volunteer organization in Serbia that runs this space, “but then the girls started to come.” As if on cue the door from the street opens and, alongside a cold blast of winter air, a group of about six young girls push gently in, full of apologies for being late. Somehow, like magic, more space is found and they settle right in.
For teachers across Canada, the past year brought new challenges as thousands of refugee children entered the classroom.
More than 20,000 of the Syrian refugees who have settled in Canada are under the age of 18, and the trials for teachers range from language barriers to trauma, according to Jan Stewart, a professor in the faculty of education at the University of Winnipeg.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, UNHCR, has launched a public awareness campaign, to encourage community support for education targeting South Sudanese refugee children in Uganda.

Le HCR, l’Agence des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés, a publié aujourd’hui un rapport montrant que plus de la moitié - 3,7 millions - des six millions d’enfants en âge d’être scolarisés et relevant de sa compétence ne vont pas à l’école.
Quelque 1,75 million d’enfants réfugiés ne vont pas à l’école primaire et 1,95 million d’adolescents réfugiés ne sont pas scolarisés dans l’enseignement secondaire. Les réfugiés sont cinq fois plus susceptibles d’être déscolarisés que la moyenne mondiale.
« Cela représente une crise pour des millions d’enfants réfugiés », a déclaré Filippo Grandi, Haut Commissaire des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés. « L’éducation des réfugiés est particulièrement négligée, alors que c’est l’une des rares occasions que nous avons pour transformer, construire la prochaine génération et améliorer le sort des dizaines de millions de personnes déracinées dans le monde. »
The youth population is continuously increasing, and is estimated to reach 1.8 billion this year. Obviously, it is a large population of mass power. Yet, as we say goodbye to another year’s International Youth Day, as the new Youth Advisor for the Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report, I think it crucial to point out that a vast portion of youth energy remains confined by physical and mental chains in countries affected by war and conflict. This must be addressed.
