The Lost Years
Zehr, Mary Ann; Mousa, Yasmine

Thousands of children were deprived of schooling in the difficult aftermath of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq five years ago. During those times, more than 2 million Iraqis have fled their homeland, mainly to Jordan and Syria. Even though the schoolchildren who came to these neighboring Arab lands with their families are now given seats in classrooms, they still feel isolated, and many lag far behind in their studies.
