Southern Cameroons Crisis keeps schools shut 0

Southern Cameroonians are attempting to break away from the French-speaking majority and establish their own state called the Federal Republic of Ambazonia.

Education has been a key focus at peace talks in Cameroon this week.

But as negotiations draw to a close on Friday, hundreds of thousands of children are still being excluded from school.

Ambazonia Restoration Forces are fighting against Cameroon government forces to break away from the French majority – and create a homeland for Ambazonians.

That has forced 98 percent of the schools in Anglophone regions to shut.
