UNICEF’s flagship report, ‘The State of the World’s Children 2012: Children in an Urban World’, has launched today, 28 February, in Mexico City. One billion children live in urban areas, a number that is growing rapidly. While urban children are generally more likely to benefit from education programs, for most of the marginalized groups, education remains inaccessible. Many fail to meet registration requirements to enroll in urban schools and others cannot afford education related costs such as enrolment fees, the costs of uniforms, books and supplies.
To discuss how the progress in urbanization has impacted education, UNICEF’s podcast moderator Femi Oke spoke with two guests: Dr. Pamela Wridt, Co-Director of Children’s Environments Research Group, and Carlos Vasquez, Architect and Education Specialist at UNICEF.
