April 2016

Attacks on education and the military use of schools are a major challenge to education provision in conflict-affected countries. In recent years, Education Clusters and Education in Emergencies Working Groups have been increasingly engaged in monitoring, reporting and responding to attacks on education and the military use of schools and using this as a basis for advocacy, prevention and response consistent with the cluster mandate of ensuring a timely and effective education response. This report aims to capture a range of perspectives on the Education Cluster’s role at the global and national levels, and to map the current Education Cluster practices, including the main challenges and lessons learned. The Education Cluster’s role includes contributing to the Monitoring and Reporting Mechanism (MRM) as a means to support accountability and higher level actions and political advocacy alongside cluster monitoring and reporting of attacks on education.
