Summary

As the crisis in Syria enters its sixth year, children continue to bear the brunt of the conflict. Two decades of investment in education have been wiped out and many Syrian school-age children have never seen the inside of a classroom, while those in school continue to be at risk of dropping out. The new Syria crisis education fact sheet finds that five years of conflict have tripled the proportion of Syrian children out of school, from 0.9 million in the 2011/2012 school year to 2.8 million in the 2014/2015 school year.
