As the days shorten, the weather cools, and the summer starts to wind down, there's just one thing on most children in Britain's minds: back to school. This annual ritual of pencil-purchasing, hair-cutting, and sleepless nights filled with mixed panic and excitement at the prospect of the new school year always makes me miss the days of my youth. Even if your pre-September routine was slightly less anxiety ridden than mine, I'm sure we all have strong recollections of these times of our lives.
However, not every child gets the chance to think about their imminent return to learning. 58 million children across the globe don't have access to education. For many of these children, the nerves, butterflies and ultimate magic of the school year will never become a reality.
