Minimum Standards for Quality Education for Refugee Youth
Kirk, Jackie; Cassity, Elizabeth
Youth Studies Australia, v26 n1 p50-56 Mar 2007
There is a growing emphasis on the right to and the benefits of education for young people within refugee camps. The benefits include physical and cognitive protection as well as the promotion of a sense of normalcy and feelings of hope. Minimum standards for refugee youth have been developed, which the authors argue should be used by not only by educators in crisis situations, but also by those involved in the education of refugee young people in their country of settlement. The use of the standards would not only provide a protective framework for positive educational development, but also ensure continuity in educational experiences for young refugees.
