Jordan, schools to open doors to all Syrian children

Intissar Ghozlan’s two youngest boys haven’t been in school since the family fled from Syria to Jordan two years ago. There’s no space in local classrooms, and the boys, 12 and 14, can “barely write their names,” having forgotten most of what they learned back home, she says.
More than 90,000 Syrian refugee children in Jordan weren’t able to attend school last year, along with hundreds of thousands in neighboring refugee host countries, prompting warnings of a “lost generation” as a result of Syria’s five-year-old civil war.
That’s now changing, at least in Jordan.
