The cost of war: calculating the impact of the collapse of Syria’s education system on Syria’s future

Giving the vast majority of Syrian children the opportunity to learn is an achievable aim, both in refugee-hosting countries and even inside Syria itself. Save the Children and other aid agencies are already supporting schools inside Syria, despite the risks and challenges, as well as working with neighbouring countries to help them provide education for refugee children and to mitigate the impact on host communities. While the underlying cause of the crisis in education –namely the ongoing war –remains unresolved, there is nonetheless considerably more that the international community should be doing to ensure that the right of Syria’s children to education is prioritised and fully funded.
