Save the Children is calling for greater international commitment to ensure child refugees remain in school.
The charity's new report, A New Deal for Refugees, says no child should be out of school for more than a month.
It comes as countries struggle to respond to a huge displacement of people fleeing conflict and hardship.
Another call for a greater response to the crisis will be made on Monday by the Special Envoy for the UN Refugee Agency, Angelina Jolie-Pitt.
Mrs Jolie-Pitt, as well as a former head of MI6, Sir Richard Dearlove, will be speaking at the BBC during a day of special live coverage examining how an age of unprecedented mobility is shaping our world.
More people are now fleeing conflict and hardship than at any other time in recorded history.

Save the Children says only one in four refugee children is now enrolled in secondary school. The charity is calling on governments and aid agencies to adopt a new policy framework that will ensure no refugee child remains out of school for more than a month.
