In The Liberated Areas Of Raqqa, Schools Have Re-Opened To Counter ISIS Extremism

With the end of summer, the new school year has begun in Syria and activists in the liberated areas have been working to get as many schools in working condition as possible. Their task is not only to provide education, but provide a sort of education that is free from the extremist values ISIS has promoted during its control over Raqqa in the past three years.
