Effects of immigration in a Syrian school
Iraqi children in Syria as refugees explain how they feel about their education, and how the trauma of life in Iraq has affected their ability to concentrate at school and look to the future. The wait for a school place, and early childhood trauma can cause problems. The headteacher discusses the problems of a rising school population and the impact on overcrowding. We also see how religious and cultural differences can cause problems for pupils. First broadcast in August 2011 on BBC Four as part of the series, Syrian School.
