Summary note:
"The report, "'Growing Up Without an Education': Barriers to Education for Syrian Refugee Children in Lebanon," documents the important steps Lebanon has taken to allow Syrian children to access public schools. But Human Rights Watch found that some schools have not complied with enrollment policies, and that more donor support is needed for Syrian families and for Lebanons over-stretched public school system. Lebanon is also undermining its positive education policy by imposing harsh residency requirements that restrict refugees' freedom of movement and exacerbate poverty, limiting parents' ability to send their children to school and contributing to child labor. Secondary school-age children and children with disabilities face particularly difficult obstacles"--Publisher's description.
