Scale of Refugees From Ukraine War on Display in Poland’s Public Schools
WARSAW—Hundreds of Ukrainian students are enrolling in this city’s public schools each day. Limits on classroom size have been raised. Some schools are running out of tables and chairs. To accommodate the roughly 100,000 refugee children currently living in Warsaw, local officials say they would need to build 2,000 new educational facilities.
“I don’t think there’s a town…in the world that would be able to admit 100,000 children in three or four weeks,” said Renata Kaznowska, the deputy mayor of Warsaw. “It’s simply impossible.”
