Sophie commented on Public schools offer second shifts for refugees

Great share! Second shifts are not atypical across the developing world and a potential panacea for overcrowding. Yet, as that last line mentions, it runs the risk of exhausting and alienating a teaching workforce that is often already challenged in many ways. It is a good stop-gap solution until more teachers are trained but I worry about the sustainability of putting such a heavy load on teachers, especially when the contemporary nature of protracted intra-state conflicts means many refugees go years or decades (if ever) before returning to their home countries.
