NEW YORK, 18 January 2013 – In 2010 UNICEF and the UNESCO Institute for Statistics launched the Global Out-of-School Children Initiative (OOSCI), an equity-focused effort whose goal is to reduce the number of out-of-school children, to address disparities in access and attendance and achieve universal primary education by 2015. Kyrgyzstan, one of the 26 countries participating in this initiative, recently published a country-level study on out-of-school children. The study describes the situation of out-of-school children in the country, the progress made by the government to get children into school and the challenges ahead.
This study emphasizes the complex and multidimensional barriers and bottlenecks that cause children to be out of school. It is clear that the issue of out-of-school children cannot be tackled in isolation, and a multi-sector approach is needed. Based on the findings of the OOSCI report, there is a crucial need to address the barriers to education in coordination with other sectors, particularly in areas of health and social protection.
