Greeks oppose free education for refugee children

Greek law says refugee children must be offered free education. Al Jazeera looks at what is keeping them out of class.

    Greece is trying to offer education to young refugees on the Aegean Islands.

    However, getting children into classes is proving difficult.

    The already thin resources are being stretched too far, say locals, while refugee parents are wary of Greek schools.

     

    Al Jazeera's John Psaropoulos reports from the Island of Samos.
