The right to education in the oPt is under threat. In 2021, the Education cluster in the oPt recorded 183 education related incidents, directly affecting 12,070 students and 501 teachers and school staff, causing prolonged loss of learning for 601,914 students. While the numbers have increased by almost half compared to 2020, the last two years reported less incidents than 2019. This is due to the temporary closure of school facilities following COVID-19 restriction measures as well as the May 2021 escalation in hostilities. As soon as the facilities re-opened, the numbers grew again.
