Education in English-speaking Cameroon truncated

The crisis in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon has truncated the educational system in that part of the Country. It began in 2016 with the teacher's protest. Since then many educational institutions have been burnt down. While we have seen students, teachers, and administrative personnel kidnapped.

Parents would risk the lives of the children by sending them to school. The last time I checked, I realized that there are some children who have not been to school since 2016. Imagine a community without education, dreams of these children are destroyed. Prominent engineers, teachers, doctors ... are forced to become someone other than what they have dreamt to be. 

2019/2020 school year is around the corner, yet there is little hope for some of these kids as the crisis escalates in this region of the country.

Education is the basic right of every child and no one should deprive these children of being educated. 

The crisis would have to stop. 

The rebels would have to stop destroying the schools and threatening the teachers and students. It should be in their best interest to protect these ones. Because the state they are fighting for would need educated folks to build it afters its independence.
