Bombing schools is a ‘senseless and cruel act’, says UNICEF

Reported bombings and destruction of schools by the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) is a matter of the deepest concern, UNICEF Nepal said today. “To bomb schools is a senseless and cruel act against the children of Nepal,” said Dr Suomi Sakai,
Representative of UNICEF Nepal. When schools are scarce and more than half a million children are not in school in the first place, to wantonly destroy schools only helps push its children back into ignorance. Nepal does not have enough schools for all its children. The private schools play a major part in helping ensure more children get to learn to read, write and count. All children have the right to go to school, and their parents have the right to choose the school. Destroying or closing down private schools – and thus forcing many more children into an already over-burdened public-school system – will not help improve the quality of education in public schools. To attack education and educational institutions is to attack the future of the next generation of Nepalis. The children of Nepal deserve better from the adults who made the decision to attack schools.
