Multiple barriers prohibit the children of refugees from Myanmar from attending Thai schools: language difficulties, costs, and frequent relocation.
Migrant Learning Centers attempt to fill this void, educating tens of thousands of children each year.
Yet when long-term migrants return to Myanmar, parents are finding that their children’s previous schooling in Thailand goes unacknowledged.
This leads to high dropout rates, as teens in particular see no future with an education that may not be recognized where they live.
