(GCPEA) – The UN Secretary-General’s report released this week confirms findings that attacks on education are a deliberate tactic in most armed conflicts worldwide, said the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack (GCPEA). The annual report of the Secretary-General to the UN Security Council on children and armed conflict provides an overview of six ‘grave violations’ committed against children, the measures taken to protect them, and recommendations for further action. According to the Secretary-General, attacks on schools are a common feature in the majority of the situations documented in the report: 17 of the 23 conflicts profiled include targeted attacks on schools, students, and/or teachers.
