Room to Learn Fact Sheet

Developing countries have succeeded in reducing the number out-of-school primary-aged children by 37 million since 1999. However, progress towards universal access has stagnated, and more than 61 million primary-aged children still remain out of school, with 40 percent in countries affected by conflict. USAID already works in partnership with many of these countries to increase equitable access to education for learners in crisis or conflict-affected environments.
