    (ANSA) – ROME, NOV 15 – In 15 years in Italy there are over 600 thousand fewer minors and one million more those in absolute poverty with the last ten years characterized by low investment in education, especially in early childhood services and in full time. The arrival of the pandemic, then, has exacerbated the educational crisis and the economic, social and geographical inequalities in which minors live. This is the picture that emerges from the XII edition of the Atlas of Childhood at Risk in Italy 2021 “The future is already here” by Save The Children which, a few days before the World Day of Childhood and Adolescence, is pushing to denounce in Italy a “risk of extinction” for children and ask for “an urgent change of course starting from the NRP”. Absolute poverty, the organization underlines, has seen continuous growth over the last 15 years and only registered a slight slowdown in 2019 with the entry into force of citizenship income. Then, in 2020, with the arrival of the crisis triggered by the pandemic, the race of absolute poverty resumed, and out of an audience of 3 million individuals benefiting from citizenship income, 753,000 are minors.

    The legacy, Save The Children points out, is that the percentage of Early School Leavers, i.e. boys between 18 and 24 who do not study and have not completed their education cycle, reaches 13.1% (the European average is of 9.9%) and that of Neet, young people between 15 and 29 who do not work, do not study and are not included in any training course, adds 23.3% (European average 13.7%). The environment in which they live is also rather compromised: more than one in five minors in Italy (21.3% of the total) lives in polluted cities, in a country where there are over 4 cars in circulation for each minor. Consequently, very few children and young people between the ages of 6 and 17 use only public transport to go to school: just over one in 4 (25.9%), with the percentage falling to less than one in 5 at South and islands (18.6%) (ANSA).
