The Children's Education Project: Tham Hin Refugee Camp, Thailand
Olesen, Mavis L.
Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, V5 n2 p251-256 2004
In 1997, twelve Karen Burmese teachers brought a Vision Paper to the Tham Hin refugee camp in Thailand. The teachers had recently written this Paper after much consultation with their Mergui-Tavoy villagers, students, leaders, and school dropouts. Over the following five years teams developed a project outlining 10 steps to educational reform, which any village in Burma could use to reform its school system. This article discusses the background to the project and issues related to it.
