I've Moved, My Rights Haven't September 2016 - This report has drawn attention to the unfolding crisis facing children forced to flee. If current trends continue, more than 63 million children could be forced to flee by 2025, of which over 25 million will cross borders and become refugees. Without a step-change in the provision of education for refugee children, at least 12 million of them will be out of school by 2025.
