Human Rights Watch

Human Rights Watch reports that more than 400,000 Syrian refugee children living in Turkey are not attending school. The Turkish government adopted an important policy in September 2014 that formally grants Syrian children access to public schools, but key obstacles including a language barrier, social integration issues, economic hardship, and lack of information about the policy, remain one year later, Human Rights Watch found.
