This paper addresses the negative impacts that the current crisis in Syria has on childhood and education. The research conducted for this paper is a compilation of scholarly articles, books, reports, and films; the diversity allows for a multiplicity of perspectives on the topic. A thorough background is provided as the groundwork to understand the shift from development to retrogression in Syria. An analysis of the diversity of effects include: educational, social, psychological, emotional, and personal. Research includes the interventions, conducted by both international and national actors, of schooling and social integration within and outside of the Syrian borders. In thoroughly analyzing the way violence influences the accessibility and quality of schooling that a child receives, as well as the way resettlement and integration impact a child, conclusions are drawn that the current interventions do not suffice.
