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. Five years of conflict have tripled the proportion of Syrian children out of school. Many Syrian children have never seen the inside of a classroom and those in school continue to be at risk of dropping out. Syrian children have been deprived of their childhood along with their right to education. Below are new resources available to mark the fifth year of crisis and conflict.
