The Syrian-Turkish Joint Committee announced it had set up an online form for Syrian students in Turkey who were unable to enroll in schools. The move will help estimate the number of students who cannot enroll in schools and refer the list of unregistered students to the Turkish Ministry of Education, which in turn will take the appropriate action so that Syrian students obtain the right to education in Turkey.
Coordinator of the Committee and member of the Syrian Opposition Coalition’s (SOC) political committee, Muhammad Sello, said that the legal status of the parents and students may be the most likely reason behind the difficulties in registering students in schools. He pointed out that the solution is related to the measures that the Turkish Migration Management introduced over the past three years to encourage foreigners to regularize their legal status.
“We will try to refer the issue to the Turkish decision-makers as we are aware of the difficulties Syrian refugees are facing in Türkiye and which may have prevented the regularization of their legal status,” Sello added.
Sello stressed the need for all Syrian refugees in Türkiye to seek the regularization of their legal status if they want stability, adding that stability will reflect positively on refuges and help alleviate the concerns that prompt them to seek illegal immigration to Europe.
