UNICEF says South Sudan is home to the highest proportion of out-of-school children, with more than half of primary and lower secondary age children not getting education. Niger is a close second with 47 percent unable to attend school, followed by Sudan and Afghanistan. According to UNICEF, nearly 24 million children in 22 countries have no access to schools. Zlatica Hoke reports violence and poverty are the main reasons that so many children grow up without education.
