In news from Lebanon, Human Rights Watch says about a quarter-million Syrian children living there as refugees do not attend school. The population of Lebanon is approximately 6 million—about 1 million of whom are Syrian refugees. About half of those refugees are children. Even though Lebanon allows for the enrollment of Syrians in its public schools, a shortage of seats and laws restricting refugees’ movements prevent them from attending.
