175 Mn Children Have No Access to Pre-primary Education

Teacher Insights

More than 175 million children don't have access to pre-primary education missing a critical investment opportunity and suffering deep inequalities from the start of life, according to UNICEF's first ever global report on pre-primary education released this year. Those children who receive atleast one year of pre-primary education are more likely to develop the critical skills they need to succeed in school, less likely to drop out of school and therefore more able to contribute to peaceful and prosperous societies and economies when they reach adulthood.
