Syrian children struggle to attend school

Neighbouring countries offer help as UN says more than 2,000 schools damaged or destroyed in conflict.

    More than 200,000 children in Syria had no schools to go to on the first day of classes on Monday.

    The UN says more than 2,000 schools have been damaged or destroyed since the beginning of an uprising against the government in March last year.

    Other educational buildings are being used as shelters by families displaced by the fighting.

    Neighbouring countries are doing the best they can to help as Al Jazeera's Jane Arraf reports from Ramth, Jordan.
