In addition to attending public schools, Syrian children require remedial education as there are differences between the two countries' curricula, and many children have been out of school since the outbreak of violence in March 2011. Remedial education will allow Syrian children to catch-up on curricula, and thereby decrease the likelihood of them dropping out of school. It is also an opportunity for teachers and counsellors to detect protection related issues and psychosocial problems that children may face.
