Photo of the Week: Out of school

Bangladesh, 2009: Rozina, 11, has been out of school since her father’s business collapsed, leaving the family unable to afford her education. The number of primary-school-aged children missing out on schooling fell by 42 per cent between 2000 and 2012.

Still, worldwide, 58 million children of that age group – children like Rozina – are out of school. If current trends continue, 15 million girls and 10 million boys are unlikely ever to set foot in a classroom.
