New @GEMReport says #Sudan, #Lebanon and #Jordan among the top ten countries hosting refugees. Resources can be a key constraint to these countries providing them with a quality education #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Better quality education is key reason for migration in some Arab States. On average, 8% of #Tunisians migrated for education purposes and over 20% from some governorates #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Addressing diversity and including #migrants and #refugees in education in the Arab States promotes social inclusion and cohesion. #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Gulfcountries have the highest immigration rates in the world. Immigrants form the majority in Qatar and UAE both in overall and in student population #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Remittances have a positive impact on household education expenditure. The countries receiving the most remittances are Egypt (US$20 billion) and Palestine (13% of GDP) #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Financial education programmes for migrants have a positive impact on financial decisions. Yemen has the lowest adult financial literacy rate in the world, while Tunisia had the highest among Arab States #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

All actors must prepare for eventually dismantling the second shift system for educating refugee children and addressing the inclusion of those who stay says new @GEMReport #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Internal Migration

Internal migration can increase educational attainment. In Egypt, children of internal migrants have lower dropout rates and are more likely to persist into secondary and post-secondary education #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Migrant child domestic workers are among the most vulnerable to exclusion from education. 90% of girl domestic workers had not completed lower secondary school in #Tunisia shows new Arab States @GEMReport #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

New Arab States @GEMReport shows migrants in slums have few education opportunities. In #Iraq, 13% of the population lives in 3,700 slums where there are almost 2,200 uncompleted schools @GEMReport #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

New Arab States @GEMReport calls on governments to invest in education infrastructures in slums. In a quarter of slums of Cairo, #Egypt, general secondary schools were situated far outside the neighbourhood #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

International Migration

#Bahrain is the only country in the Gulf with open access to the public school system for migrants, which make up about half of public school students shows new @GEMReport #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Prevalence of private education in the GCC means quality and access depend on ability to pay. Immigrants make up 73% of private school students in #Kuwait and 83% in the #United Arab Emirates #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Stateless students can only attend fee-paying private schools in #Kuwait. New @GEMReport shows need for Arab States to include migrants in national education systems #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

#Morocco is developing policies and a framework to guide sub-Saharan African migrants’ integration into the education system. New @GEMReport shows that about 5,500 children were enrolled in 2017/18 #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Displacement

Faced with displacement crises, some Arab States have responded with parallel education systems but the consequence is unqualified teachers; examinations that are not certifiable and funding that risks being cut at short notice #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Lack of identity documents and credentials is a key factor in refugee exclusion from national education systems. #Jordan allows refugee children without service cards to enrol in public schools #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019 [image]

Recognizing and addressing children’s trauma is complex. In Syria, 73% of surveyed teachers had no mental health and psychosocial support training #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019  [image]

In #Iraq, 42% of IDP children and youth aged 6 to 17 living in camps attended formal education, compared with 60% of IDP children living in host communities and 73% of non-displaced children #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

IDP sites and shelters in #Yemen do not hold temporary classes unless the camp is more than 5 km from the nearest school. What temporary classes are available are only for grades 1 to 5 #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

In #Sudan, camp communities construct and annually reconstruct temporary learning spaces. About 21% of schools in South Kordofan and 13% in West Darfur are unusable #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019

Only government-affiliated schools in #Syria provide widely recognized certification and displaced children in opposition-held areas seeking access to examinations in government-held schools face risks #EducationOnTheMove Bit.ly/arabstates2019
