The devastating floods in Pakistan have damaged almost 8,000 schools across the country, according to United Nations estimates.
About 5,000 other schools have become shelters for the displaced.
Children who were not affected by the floods will not be able to continue their education, at least for the time being.
The UN says it plans to meet schooling needs by setting up temporary learning facilities in camps, while the government of Sindh province has announced plans to enroll students in cities unaffected by the floods.
