Schools as a safe place for learning under vicious attack.

Washington, August 5, 2014 –.Schools must be safe places for the world’s children. Schools should not be attacked in conflicts nor used to hide weapons. The attacks on several UN-run schools in Gaza, killing innocent school children and teachers, are deplorable. It is also wrong for children in Israel to have to live with the threat of missiles indiscriminately targeting their schools, homes and communities.

What I really appreciate about Ms Gillard’s insight is the sobering caution that “…Attacks on schools occur not only in Gaza or Nigeria, but globally on an ongoing basis. They don’t always make it into the headlines of international news. But we must listen and act every single time.
