Education for Children of Conflict Roundtable Series: Iraq, Education, and Children of Conflict

Due to war and sectarian violence, many Iraqis have fled their homes and are now living as refugees in neighboring countries or as internally displaced persons in Iraq. Children make up about half of the four million people uprooted from their homes, and there is no doubt that their education is falling through the cracks. The World Bank's Safaa El-Kogali, who recently met with the Iraqi Minister of Education, the Director General of Planning, and other senior officials, is working with the government on capacity-building initiatives to meet the needs of internally displaced children. George Rupp, President of the International Rescue Committee, recently returned from a trip to the region, where he met with top government officials from Syria, Jordan, Iraq, and the United States, as well as with Iraqi refugees in Syria and Jordan. Angelina Jolie traveled to Iraq in February to learn more about the situation of displaced children and to raise awareness about their humanitarian needs.

Roundtable Meeting

Beyond Primary: Making the Case for Universal Secondary Education

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences recently published the book Educating All Children: A Global Agenda that considers the challenges of achieving universal basic and secondary education globally. In addition to co-editors, David Bloom, Joel Cohen and Martin Malin, leading experts who contributed to the book include Aaron Benevot, Paul Glewwe, Michael Kremer, and Melissa Binder. The research suggests that achieving universal primary and secondary education is not only urgently needed but also feasible with commitments of economic, human, and political resources by the international community.

Co-editor Joel Cohen, Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, joined us to speak about why universal secondary education is important. Professor Melissa Binder, author of the chapter on the cost of providing universal secondary education, also presented her findings.
