This indicator provides information on children and Youth attending schooling - Gives number of children with access to education. Note that target % will depend on pre-crises enrolment figures (refer to FODs where available)
Proxy indicator can be number of open facilities * average number of children at each facility
Disaggregation by primary, secondary and tertiary, note age ranges differ from country to country. Sometimes primary is disaggregated by lower/upper. Also sometimes by formal and non-formal such as accelerated learning and vocational education.
In some countries, primary and (higher) secondary education fall under different ministries, which can complicate data collection. Some countries distringuish between primary and secondary, others use basic education, which covers 9 grades. Countries
should use what makes most sense, but we should strive towards covering
secondary as well.
There is a differing level of quality of data which can be collected at different phases of the emergency depending on the context, eg the data available and the systems for data collection in place before the crisis, the accessibility of the affected areas, the resources on the ground, etc...
In case there is a strong discrepancy between the percentage of girls and of boys enrolled in school, the programme should address these gaps by undertaking a gender analysis of the specific challenges the disadvantaged group is facing in equally accessing education. Please refer to the INEE pocket guide to gender for more information.
