With Turkey now home to over two million Syrian refugees, school places, which are key to integration, are in short supply. An Istanbul suburb has launched a pilot project to address this problem.
Four million refugee children around the world are excluded from education, according to a United Nations report. A solution should be to allow refugees to attend regular schools, the UNHCR has demanded.
Germany and Turkey's foreign ministers visited the school on its 150th anniversary, on the second and final day of a difficult diplomatic mission for Heiko Maas. Ties between the NATO allies have been strained of late.
German schools are short by nearly 40,000 in total, the teachers' association says. One answer could be permitting people to become educators even if they didn't begin their careers that way.
