Children out of school: The Sabah context
This Report is part of the global Out-of-School Children Initiative (OOSCI), which is a joint initiative by UNICEF and UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS). The initiative is aimed at providing support for countries in reducing or eliminating incidences of out-of-school children using pre-primary, primary and secondary school datasets as well as household survey and other data. The report compiles comprehensive profiles of excluded children in Sabah, the barriers keeping them from going to school, and recommendations to address this issue.
