Al-Shabaab Targets Teachers in Northeast Kenya

The International Crisis Group posted on 22 July 2020 a briefing titled "How to Shield Education from Al-Shabaab in Kenya's North East."

Northeastern Kenya has proven fertile ground for al-Shabaab.  It is trying to expel teachers it views as outsiders of majority-Muslim northeastern Kenya.  The Kenyan government response--to evacuate non-native teachers--has shuttered the area's schools.  Nairobi should supply funds to hire local teachers (if they exist) while it works to restore security.
