Children in Ukraine Without School

It’s the beginning of a new school year in Ukraine, but the children of the small village of Nikishine in eastern Ukraine no longer have a school to go to. There are gaping holes instead of windows, and huge chunks of the roof are missing. Inside the school, pieces of chairs and desks, mangled world maps and books are strewn across the floors, mixed with broken glass, half buried under piles of rubble. Classroom doors are shattered or torn off. Broken lights are hanging by the thread. This was all a result of the war in Ukraine. These poor children aren't able to exercise their right to receive an education. That is just completely unjust. Before, Nikishine had a population of over 800 people. With residents fleeing the fighting, it has now been reduced to 300. Where else have you seen this happen? Children need to be taken out of the way of war and schools especially should not be targeted. How do you feel about the children being placed in this situation?
