While thousands of Syrian children were killed in the three-year civil war that has torn their home country apart, those who fled the violence were not spared from losses.

Around 110,000 Syrian children are enrolled in Jordan's state schools, where they get free education, but there are tens of thousands of others who are barred from enrolling as they have fallen behind in school by three or more grades and need to catch up.

Others are being kept at home out of fear that they will be harmed by a society they feel does not welcome their presence.
