Syrian refugee girls take a photo with noura jumblatt founder of the ngo kayany foundation at a school for syrian refugee girls built by the foundation in bar elias town in the bekaa valley lebanon october 19 2017. A mid the syrian chaos of carnage starvation and evacuation there is a tiny glimmer of hope the lebanese government has declared that it has taken 207000 syrian refugee children off the streets and given them places in their countrys public schools. More than half of the nearly 500000 school age syrian children registered in lebanon are not enrolled in formal education despite lebanons progress in enrolling syrian children the huge number of children still out of school is an immediate crisis requiring bold reforms said bassam . In lebanon donors funded the education ministry to make 200000 public school spaces available free for syrian children in 2015 2016 but only 149000 children actually enrolled part of the problem was that many did not have valid residency for which all syrians ages 15 and older had to pay a us200 annual fee lebanese authorities formally. The movement of syrian refugees into lebanon often heading to cities in search of work has placed a seemingly insurmountable burden on the education system with every school seeing rising pupil numbers and static levels of resources
