La ONU alerta de una “crisis global de educación” de mayor magnitud de lo que calculaba

Todas las tardes, muy puntual, llega Antony, de 17 años, al espacio de refuerzo escolar que tiene Save the Children en su comunidad en Colombia. Desde que él y su familia huyeron de su país natal, Venezuela, no había tenido la oportunidad de estudiar. “Soy migrante. Llegué aquí hace cuatro años y no contaba con los documentos necesarios para entrar en una escuela. Hace tres, empecé a asistir a las actividades de Save y ellos me ayudaron a entrar en un colegio. En las mañanas voy a la escuela, en las tardes, al espacio de refuerzo de la organización”, explica el chico por videollamada. Lo necesita, dice, porque considera que lo que aprende en la jornada lectiva formal “no es suficiente”.
