Iraqi refugees in Jordan will be allowed to go to school

August 8th, 2007 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Jordan has ended its discriminatory policy, and allowed Iraqi refugee children to go to school.

Until now, only rich families could send their youngsters to school, by paying.

It means they will have similar rights to refugees in Syria – Iraqis in Syria get free schooling and healthcare.

There are an estimate 1.2 million in Syria, and 750,000 in Jordan. None of Iraq’s other neighbours allow refugees in (Kuwait, Saudi, Iran and Turkey).
