Syrian children return to school in exile

An estimated 2,400 Syrian children are enrolled at UN-backed school inside refugee camp in Jordan.

    Jordan has opened its first school for Syrian refugee children whose education was interrupted because of the war.

    Classes started in early October at the school backed by United Nations Children’s Fund. The Jordanian government has provided the teachers and the learning programme. 

    So far, 2,400 students have enrolled. But many say they are not happy with the quality of education they are getting.
