THIS FEBRUARY, the largest ever report on violence in education was released by the UN. The ‘Education Under Attack’ report highlighted over 10,000 attacks against educational institutions across the world, with a focus on issues including development, political conflict and the implications of gender. Schools and Universities in over 70 countries were reported to have had students subjected to bombing, arson, abduction, as well as gun and knife crime in a systematic attack against those in education.
Social media responded. Read below some highlights of the issues Twitter has found to be the most pervasive in talks on the ongoing attack on education globally.
