Nigeria Tops List of Children Without School

A new UN report revealed that more children miss school in Nigeria than in any other country. As of 2011, at least 57 million children around the world lacked access to schools, a slight improvement from approximately 61 million in 2010. Five other African countries, including Kenya and Burkina Faso, were also on the list.
