Civil unrest hinders Yemeni children's education - Save the Children

SANA'A, March 12, 2011- The Emergency Education Cluster in Yemen voiced on Saturday concerns about recent reports indicating that children's school attendance has been disrupted due to civil unrest in some cities.

This came in a press release issued by Save the Children – Yemen, saying "Children have the right to education at all times, including during times of civil unrest, and schools are responsible for providing a protective and safe environment for children" .

The Emergency Education Cluster's members expressed their concern that "children's right to education is being violated and children's welfare is being put at risk".

The Education Cluster therefore urged all parties involved to protect children from being manipulated towards the achievement of political goals and take positive action towards children's safe attendance at school.
