This paper focuses on accountability and its inter-linkages with other issues such as decentralisation, community engagement and the impact of the Syrian crisis on the education system in Jordan. However, it also highlights the shortcomings of the legal framework and the lack of enforcement of education laws. Given the limitations of time, and geographical reach, this paper does not attempt to highlight all challenges facing the education system in Jordan, but rather seeks to compliment other efforts to elevate the status of education in the Kingdom.
This paper presents descriptive statistics from a limited sample survey of Jordanian and Syrian refugee households in the city of Mafraq in northern Jordan. The main objective is to enhance our understanding of the communication between public schools and the households of their students through information from parents. The paper answers such questions as: To what extent is there contact between the schools and the parents; how do they communicate; and who initiates the communication?

Education opens minds; it opens doors to new opportunities, and oﬀers a sense of normalcy where it may no longer exist. In contexts of mass displacement education also forms one mechanism for protection. This is as much the case for basic education as it is for higher education. The beneﬁts of higher education are manifold and have profound eﬀects on individuals, communities, and stability.
INTRODUCTION AND EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Key stakeholders asked ARDD-LA to investigate whether or not Syrian refugees could legally work from home or otherwise use their foreign teaching or medical credentials in Jordan. This legal guidance note sets forth the applicable requirements and calls attention to several important protection concerns.
