Graph of the week

Children with disabilities constitute 15% of out-of-school children

Children, adolescents and youth with disabilities accounted for 12% of the in‑school population, but 15% of the out‑of‑school population. In general, the lower the out‑of‑school rate, the more likely it is that children with disabilities will be among those out of school, suggesting that those with disabilities are among the hardest to reach.
