Nowadays the percentages of illiteracy worldwide have been smaller than ever. Education is public in most places of the world and available to both girls and boys. Nevertheless, there is a specific group of people, whose education is neglected. This group is refugee children. Even though refugee children have the same rights as every other child, they face many problems when it comes to being incorporated in a school setting. First and foremost, usually refugees travel to new places whose languages they do not speak. This means that refugee children need to learn a new language in order to be included in any educational program as school is not available in their native language. There is a very big gap between all the privileges that native to the new country children have in comparison to the newcomers. Besides speaking the language, most schools require many different certificates to prove a child’s identity and many certificates to prove someone’s legal status, that they are in the new place legally. If refugee parents can not provide those, children sometimes cannot be enrolled to schools. There are also many financial reasons why a refugee child cannot attend a school in a new country, making it excluded. The cost of traveling to and from school, the cost of feeding and the cost of books sometimes makes it hard for them to attend. Last but not least, many children who manage to enroll in schools, cannot go because of their culture or religion as they face a great deal of racism. Many times locals will not accept foreign children who will “spoil” the homogeneity of their school, making them once again excluded. Inequality in education is a great problem that many people face. Even though it concerns many people, refugee children are obviously the ones that face the greater percentage of the problem. The UN has created many organizations to help battle the problem, but we still have a great way to go.
