Life as a classroom in Syria

Posted by:
World Vision
What happens in a classroom? There is learning, teaching, the odd tantrum, fun and games. Well, at least, this is what should happen in a classroom. In Syria, however, after more than five long years of conflict, terrifying things have happened, and continue to happen, in classrooms.  Today, all too often, the sounds of laughter and learning have been replaced with the sounds of war, teachers have been arrested, displaced families have take refuge in abandoned classrooms and makeshift hospitals have been set up in them to treat the wounded. The numbers hint at the horror – one in four schools in Syria has been damaged, destroyed or used to shelter displaced people, one-fifth of teachers have fled the country and more than 2 million children are out of school.  The are just some of the costs directly impacting Syria as a result of the conflict, identified in World Vision's new report, The Cost of Conflict. The full report is available here:
