(Theirworld) – The pledge to safeguard students from attack came days after a coalition that backs the government was blacklisted by the UN for airstrikes on schools. Hundreds of its schools have been damaged or destroyed by attacks in its ongoing conflict. Millions of its children are out of school because of strike action by teachers who haven’t been paid for months. In the midst of this chaos – almost unnoticed – Yemen has become the 70th country to sign the Safe Schools Declaration.
