Meetings postponed

In the United States schools struggle to cope with losses among staff, pupils and parents after terrorist attacks last week

The devastation in New York and Washington has forced the postponement of two important meetings in the drive to give primary places to every child in the world - a campaign The TES supports.

The United Nations put off its Children's Summit, which was to be held in New York this week. Its purpose was to review global progress on child poverty, health and education, and set new goals. The meeting is expected to be rescheduled for 2002.

The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have postponed next week's annual meetings in Washington until next spring. Education campaigners had hoped to use the meetings to seek a commitment on the abolition of school fees in developing countries.
