Human Rights Watch is a nonprofit, nongovernmental global human rights organization. HRW has documented Boko Haram’s increasingly brutal assaults on schools, students and teachers in northeastern Nigeria. Nearly one million children have little or no access to school, and Nigeria’s security forces have contributed to the problem by using schools as military bases. Between 2009 and 2015, Boko Haram’s attacks destroyed more than 910 schools. At least 611 teachers have been deliberately killed and another 19,000 forced to flee. “In its brutal crusade against western-style education, Boko Haram is robbing an entire generation of children in northeast Nigeria of their education,” said Mausi Segun, Nigeria researcher at HRW.
