Media Coverage | March 28, 2017

EastWest Institute Visiting Scholar Tara Kangarlou discusses in depth the education crisis in Syria with Imad Barq, education minister for the Syrian interim government. Kangarlou interviewed Barq on behalf of Al-Monitor.

With no unified Syrian curriculum for Syrian children in or outside of the country in sight, Tara Kangarlou's interview with Imad Barq sheds light on potential alternatives that can be taken into consideration when attempting to manage the education crisis in Syria.

Barq, who believes “the only way to monitor the volatile education landscape” is to be in Syria, currently resides in Western Aleppo where he seeks to help the thousands of Syrian children who have been deprived of an education.
