South Sudan: war deprives children of education

The civil war has seen much of the population displaced, depriving 1.8 million children of school-going age of education.

    South Sudan has the world's highest proportion of young children not getting an education.

    The civil war has seen thousands of people killed and millions displaced. It's also had a major impact on education, with 1.8 million, or 70 percent of school-going age children not getting any education.

    The United Nations says years of war makes it difficult for kids to get to school, even in areas not directly affected by fighting.
