Part of the purpose of this report is to set out – on the basis of Save the Children’s experience – what they believe to be the impact of conflict on children and on their education. The report also sets out Save the Children's understanding of how education can make conflicts worse and how education – the right sort of education – can support peace. However, describing how the right sort of quality education can lead to peace and how the wrong sort can make conflict worse will only get us so far. We need to find ways of making quality education a reality in conflict-affected fragile states around the world.
