Some 1,500 child refugees are to start lessons at Greek schools on Monday afternoon.

The lessons are to be held from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 20 schools with another 20,000 refugee children to be inducted into classes at other schools in due course.

In comments to state television ERT on Sunday, Education Minister Nikos Filis said that “Greek society is ready to embrace the children of refugees,” describing opposition by parents at some schools across the country as “isolated cases.”
