Building the Peace. Rural Education and conflict in Colombia

Mabel González Bustelo , 9 December 2016

The conflict that has affected Colombia for the last 50 years, has reinforced economic inequalities and widened the divide between urban and rural areas. It has also severely affected children’s
access to quality education. There is now a three-year difference in learning levels between children in the same grade in urban and rural areas. To bridge this gap and ensure sustainable reintegration
of children formerly associated with armed groups, considerable investments should be made to strengthen access to quality education in rural areas.
