The most pressing issue that Yemen’s education sector is facing, is the since 2015 ongoing conflict in the country. More specifically, the constant attacks on students, teachers, and school infrastructure have a devastating impact on the country’s educational system. This in turn strongly limits the possibility for children to attain an education.
Apart from this challenge, Yemen can also not provide enough civil servant salaries, decreasing the accessibility of education as well.
Put in numbers, around 2 million children in Yemen are currently out of school as the humanitarian conflict situation continues to go on.
