Education in Lebanon
The Lebanese government has taken the extraordinary step of committing to enroll all Syrian refugee children in their public school system. As positive as the policy environment might be, the reality at school level is that there are still numerous barriers to access, from academic under-preparedness to discrimination. Currently only half of the Syrian refugees in Lebanon are attending formal school.
