Today started the Syrian kids their first day as pupils in a public
school in Montevideo. They are among the 120 refugees taken as
political refugees to Uruguay. Several of them are Palestinian living
in Syria as refugees, the war expelled them from Syria and now they
are refugees here, they are going to be trained in Spanish and be
treated as any child.
The Uruguayan school is a copy of the French, secural, free and
obligatory. All wear the same white rock with a blue tie, to cover up
the social differences.
I was myself educated in a Catholic private school but the public
school in Uruguay is really something to be proud of.
And it feels right for us, who has been refugees in so many countries,
to open this land to so many refugees as possible who want settle down
here. A country bigger than Belgium and Holland together and with a
population of 3 million people need new ideas and cultural input :)
