A book is left on the ground at the yard of a school destroyed in government airstrike in Tel Rifaat, on the outskirts of Aleppo, Syria, Sunday, Sept. 16, 2012. A new school year began in Syria on Sunday, but the country's agonizing civil war is keeping thousands of students out of classrooms across the country. Many schools have been destroyed or are home to refugees. Some parents are simply too afraid to send their children to school due over fears of violence. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen)
