    Diversity in education in Myanmar [English Language]

    Description
    The purpose of this report from Pyoe Pin/Yaung Zin, upon diversity in education in Myanmar (in English language) is to outline the diversity and role of non-state basic education provision in Myanmar (excluding the for-profit urban private sector) and to offer an analysis of the social and economic benefits of a diverse education system that meets the needs of a multi-ethnic, multi-lingual population. It is hoped that a better understanding of these systems will lead to increased support by both government and the development partners and the report makes some specific recommendations and suggestions for inclusive educational policy-making in Myanmar. The research for this report was based on a review of existing literature and data collected on field-trips between 2015, 2016 and August and September 2016 in: Yangon, Mandalay, Lashio, Taunggyi and Hpa An, covering Chin, Kachin, Karen and Pa-O nationality respondents as well as three monastic schools and three non-state teacher training programmes.
