Around the world, 28 million boys and girls are not in school. Wars and crises have kept children from getting their educations. Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is the UN’s Special Envoy for Global Education. He wants international support for programs to help children get back to school. Schools were once safe, says Mr. Brown. But now, he says, they are increasingly becoming instruments of war. In the past five years, there were more than 10,000 attacks on schools. Mr. Brown proposed creating an international fund for education in emergencies. He is thinking about new uses of technology to improve school safety. Such a program has been launched in Pakistan. Last December, the Pakistani Taliban killed 140 children at a school in Peshawar. Pakistani officials are now working with Predictify.Me, a U.S. technology company. Under the “Pakistan Safe Schools” program, schools will use new computer software to test their safety plans. Mr. Brown said it is a major step forward in a country where more than 5 million children do not go to school. The UN’s Safe Schools initiative also has collected $30 million for protecting schools in Nigeria. It helps by moving children to new schools. Students who attend schools in the areas where Boko Haram is active are moved to safer areas. In Syrian, conflict has kept 3 million children out of school. Mr. Brown said the world should protect childrens’ rights and stop turning its back on young victims of war.
