The purpose of this report is to shine a spotlight on edu-cation in the Arab world at a time when most public atten-tion is focused elsewhere, and thereby to open a dialogue about this key issue. It is crucial now, more than ever, to provide support for the ongoing efforts of Arab education-alists—the many actors and innovators who are working day by day to provide education to the region’s young people. Progressive and smart investments in education made today, including those focused on children affected by conflict, will reap large benefits in the future.
