About 1.1 million Syrian refugees have fled into Lebanon. A quote from Bassam Khawaja that really speaks loudly to the people,” Children should not have to sacrifice their education to seek safety from the horrors of war in Syria.” To this, many Syrian schools have let in a non morning school shift so many more refugee kids can come to school, instead of having to stay at home. Adding in the afternoon shift of school has helped the population of Syrian kids that don’t go to school decrease, and increase the number that of kids that get formal education.
