Anas al-Khabir Idlib Baccalaureate, Syria’s secondary-school diploma, is a turning point in the lives of many. The grades Syrians get in their diploma determine the higher education they are going to get, and therefore their entire academic, social, economic and social future. The war in Syria has already crashed the dreams of so many young men and women of getting their studies and improving their situation. Thousands of them have already dropped out of education in Syria, and refugees cannot even get recognized certificates/degrees. Abdullah al-Mustafa who has left the country to Turkey managed to register at school which opened its doors to Syrian students. After finishing the school year, Abdullah passed the final exams and got his diploma, but he realized later that it was not recognized by any educational institution in and outside Syria. Abdullah is studying now for a Libyan diploma since the Libyan government is granting Syrian students an opportunity to study and get a internationally-recognized Libyan diploma. Farah, a Syrian student, criticized the Syrian National Coalition for failing to establish educational institutions concerned with the future of Syrian students , whether displaced or living in areas controlled by the opposition. Farah also expressed concerns about the lack of a special curriculum designed for students Syrians. Noureddine Kattan, and after a year-long search for an appropriate school, has found a school teaching a Syrian curriculum, but he is suffering due to the lack of vision, organization and strategy in his school which has decided suddenly to adopt the Sudanese curriculum, and later the Libyan one.
