Hum Venezuelan

Venezuelan migrant families have alleged that their children are being turned away from schools in Peru and Columbia.

AlJazeera reports the administrators were requiring for proofs of the children’s education in Venezuela. If they didn’t have them, they might not have the opportunity to attend school.

Some schools would go to the extent of brazenly telling them their children are not acceptable.

It is reported that a recent study organized for Save the Children revealed that a quarter of Venezuelan migrant children in two major cities of Peru were not enrolled in school.

A similar thing is happening in Colombia. There, adolescents who were irregular migrants were being refused enrollment in schools.

27 percent of migrant children, the survey conducted for Save the Children revealed, were not in school.

Major reasons of children not being in school were so flimsy. A lack documentation of missing proof of their education level in Venezuela for instance. Another was arriving for registration late.

Although the governments of both countries have made regulations to ease the plight of venezuelan migrant children, lack of communication is so apparent that those at the lower levels still discriminate.
