“Without Education They Lose Their Future” Denial of Education to Child Asylum Seekers on the Greek Islands

Human Rights Watch, (2018)

This report found that fewer than 15 percent of more than 3,000 school-age asylum-seeking children on the islands were enrolled in public school at the end of the 2017-2018 school year, and that in government-run camps on the islands, only about 100 children, all preschoolers, had access to formal education.
