Myanmar: the 7 different states and the education system!
Last year in May, June and July I had the amazing experience to travel to Myanmar as a volunteer teacher. My job was to teach young Burmese adults about equality and justice. I understand that it already seems to be a very long time ago as it was before we even heard or read the word “covid”. To tell you it, I was living in Hpa-An a small city in Kayin state in central/south Myanmar. I was a teacher in a private academy made for young adults to deepen their literature, philosophy and language skills before going to university. While I was living there, I got to give a lot of my time and my knowledge to my students, but I also got to learn a lot about this country. I learned about the complex history it has, about the current education system and mostly about the kind-hearted people there. I have to say that I find it hard to learn about the reality of Myanmar from news websites and articles. They are always inaccurate or lacking in details and research. The point of this article is to share with you some of what I learned and experienced in Myanmar for you to understand better the current situation of this country to create your own opinion.Read full story
