Yemen Education


The goals of the school in Yemen are set in a law passed by Parliament in 1992. In addition to providing the country with qualified labor, the school will promote Islamic principles and values. In 1993, the school had two different structures: 6 + 3 + 3 year courses in the country’s north and 8 + 4 in its south. The new law requires the introduction of a 9 + 3 structure throughout the country. Schooling is compulsory for the first 9 years, from 6 to 15 years of age. In 1991, 60 percent of all school-age children attended school (85 percent of boys and 30 percent of girls). About 13 percent of 16-18 year-olds were in the last three grades (28 percent of boys and 6 percent of girls). Illiteracy is high, especially among women. In the mid-1990s, only a third of the population was literate.

2015 Saudi Arabia attacks Yemen

In that situation, Saudi Arabia attacked Yemen. Inspired by the US tradition of bringing together coalitions to commit crimes against humanity, the Saudis formed a coalition of the monarchies of the Arabian Peninsula and Morocco, as well as the dictatorships of Egypt and Sudan. They launched violent aerial bombardments of Yemen and continued this bombing campaign for the next six months before Saudi troops moved into the country. The United States is allied with Saudi Arabia and therefore backed the Saudi war. The UN and the Security Council could therefore look powerless while thousands of civilians were killed in Yemen for the Saudi bombs.

In just 4 months, the sheep had created a gigantic humanitarian disaster in the country, with up to 20 million. people depended on disaster relief – but without any help they had the chance to reach. The only belligerent party in the country that benefited from the war of the sheep was AQAP, which advanced in the power space created after the sheep bombed Houthi militia. Already in April 2015, AQAP took over control of the southeastern port city of Al Mukalla, which had been controlled by the Houthis for several months. In May, Human Rights Watch investigations showed that Saudi Arabia had used the banned cluster bombs in its attacks. An October UN study found that of the 2615 civilians who had been since March, over 60% had been killed during Saudi air bombings. The use of cluster bombs continued throughout 2015 and into 2016, prompting UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon to declare war crimes to be possible. In January 2016, Saudi aircraft attacked a hospital run by MSF in Sa’ada. At least 6 were killed. It was Israel that already in 2009 introduced the tradition of attacking hospitals. The United States continued it with attacks on MSF hospitals in Afghanistan in 2015, and in 2016 Saudi Arabia joined the tradition. The UN disaster organization OCHA had 21 million.
