The legacy of Boko Haram attacks on education

In Nigeria, Boko Haram's campaign against education has kidnapped or killed students and teachers alike and destroyed thousands of schools and classrooms, leaving many parents afraid to return their children to classes.

    Boko Haram's nine-year battle to destroy the education system in northern Nigeria has left hundreds of teachers and children killed or kidnapped.

    Thousands of classrooms have also been blown up or set on fire.

    Many parents are now keeping their children at home.
