Reports from the State Department reveal that nearly 80 percent of the 11,000 Syrian refugees arriving in the U.S. over the past year were children. Officials say that is a larger figure than most groups because most of the Syrian families, who mostly have large families, have stayed together despite the possibility displacement. Many of the children refugees are being enrolled into public schools throughout the country. The cities include Chicago, Illinois; Austin, Texas; New Haven, Connecticut and San Diego, California. El Cajon, a city outside San Diego, has received 76 new Syrian students during the first week of school.
