Refugees replace students in Iraq classrooms

Thousands of students in Iraq no longer receive schooling as campuses turn into camps for displaced families.

    The conflicts in Iraq and Syria have disrupted the education of millions of children as schools turned into refugee centres habrouring hundreds of thousands of familes who have been displaced. 

    More than 400 schools in the northern Iraqi Kurdish region of Dohuk faced this fate, as classrooms turned into rooms for refugees to sleep.
