Schools as Zones of Peace
PDF File Size: 51 KB | Download   
The UN System in Nepal expresses its deep concern at the increasing number of attacks on schools by some youth activists that are endangering the lives of children and jeopardising their right to education. In May 2011 the Government of Nepal endorsed a directive declaring all schools,(including school buses) as Zones of Peace. This Schools as Zones of Peace (SZOP) directive was issued to ensure that schools remain a safe haven for children and where teaching and learning could continue unhindered in an atmosphere free of violence and interference. The reports of arson and vandalism in schools and school buses go against the spirit of SZOP. While the incidents of the past weeks damaged school property, the most recent attacks on school buses, some with children still inside them, could have had disastrous consequences. Such acts of violence go against the basic principles of children’s right to education in a protective environment free from fear.
