    United Nations: Attacks on schools must stop

    United

    In many countries, the United Nations (UN) reiterated that it condemned school attacks.

    On Thursday, the international community was told by Secretary-general António Guterres “that attacks on schools have to stop.”

    In celebration of the International Day to Protect Education from Angst, the UN leader talked during a virtual event.

    Guterres said schools must be places of learning, safety, and peace, noting that education provides information, skills and transforms lives.

    He complained about the horrors that conflicts inflict on learning, the targeted, destructed, military use of schools, as children are confronted with violence, exploitation, and recruitment.

    Guterres revealed that more than 13,000 reports of educational or military strikes have been reported all around the world between 2015 and 2020.

    “The loss is incalculable. And this threat is not lessening, as the horrifying events in Afghanistan are showing us so starkly”, he said.

    The writer urged all countries to approve, so quickly as possible, the Safe Schools Declaration.

    The statement, now endorsed by 111 countries, sets out concrete steps that governments must take in order to protect schools and education.

    Guterres charged countries to “hold perpetrators accountable” by making attacks on schools “unacceptable and punished”.

    He called for increased support for the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) and UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) as they work hard to protect education, students, teachers, and schools.

    Schools in Nigeria’s North-East and North-West regions have been targeted by bandits and terrorists.

    Hundreds are not open at the moment after the state government ordered their closure to forestall further attacks.
