Nine primary schools serve Attiak camp. Each has about 600 pupils; the teacher-student ratio is about 1:150.
However the numbers fluctuate greatly from day-to-day as children switch between the schools, depending on which one is providing a midday meal. The staff are not qualified to teach - most have no more than a junior school leaver's certificate.
As well as wanting life and peace for their children, parents yearn for them to be well educated.
