Nationwide efforts are underway to make sure that all children in Yemen are back in school on September 17 for the new scholastic year

Nationwide efforts are underway to make sure that all children in Yemen are back in school on September 17 for the new scholastic year. The Ministry of Education expects the enrollment of about 750,000 to 800,000 new pupils throughout Yemen. Although girls’ enrolment rates have been on the rise since 1990, they remain well below those of boys, with the girl-to-boy ratio at 73 percent only.
