As New Zealand children return to school for 2014, millions of children in poorer countries can’t read or do simple sums because there are around 57 million children who don’t have a school to go to.

It was the goal of World leaders to make sure every child had a school place before 2015 but it is now more likely to be 2086 before this is possible.

There has been some progress in offering children education though. There are now half as many children unable to go to school as there were in the year 2000. In the past 13 years, around 60 million more children were granted access to education.

The reasons for such a high number of children without a school to attend include lack of money, lack of teachers, and the ongoing conflicts in places such as Syria.
