UN prepares Iraq’s displaced children to return to school

Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi children could not attend school for three years while the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group controlled the province of Mosul and other areas around it.

But after an Iraqi government offensive that forced ISIL (also known as ISIS) fighters to flee the region, the UN stepped in to establish a system to prepare children for returning to class.

But a teacher’s shortage is adding to the challenges before the new school year begins next month.

Al Jazeera’s Charles Stratford reports from northern Iraq.
