The Syrian government is going to reconstruct 4,000 schools destroyed by militants in the next three years, Syrian Education Minister Hazwan al-Waz told media.
According to the minister added, about the same number of schools across the country destroyed by terrorists cannot be rebuilt. He noted that about four million students are going to school in 2018 and the authorities are ready to increase the number of school places if it’s needed.
Separately, the minister revealed that the Ministry of Education had hired 30,000 teachers additionally in those cities, which were liberated from militants.
“They began working on August 26. This is always the case here -school administrations start working a week before the beginning of an academic year,” he said.
