“I Want to Continue to Study”: Barriers to secondary education for Syrian refugee children in Jordan

As the conflict in Syria enters its 10th year, the education crisis for Syrian refugee children in Jordan who now are progressing into secondary education has become more acute. Many children are unable to access education because of poverty, lack of affordable education, poor quality of education, the low value of continuing education, administrative barriers, and inadequate accommodations for children with disabilities. 

Through interviews with Syrian refugee families and children, staff at humanitarian agencies and NGOs, and donor and government officials, this report finds that obstacles to education become more severe for refugee children who enter secondary school.  It also finds that humanitarian education planning has largely overlooked the needs of this vulnerable age group.
