Diya Nijhowne discusses in GCPEA News a recent study, "Protecting Education Personnel from Targeted Attack in Conflict-Affected Countries." The study, by the Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack (GCPEA), describes how teachers have been targeted in armed conflicts around the world and documents various strategies to keep them safe. "When teachers and professors are intimidated, injured, killed, or forced to flee, the short-term impact goes well beyond the victims ... education access and quality also suffer," writes Nijhowne.
