The Karen Teacher Working Group (KTWG) launched its latest film “Our Schools, Our Language and Our Future” today in Yangon.
The film investigates local education initiatives in communities across Karen areas of Eastern Myanmar. It shows KTWG’s work providing in service mobile teacher training, pre service teacher training, education assistance, community mobilization and support to school management in action.
The film also explores education issues relevant to Indigenous people throughout Myanmar and shows members of the multi-ethnic education network which KTWG helped develop in 2011.
The film touches on issues pertinent to indigenous people in the current national education policy debate in Myanmar, namely mother tongue language of instruction, local curriculum and decentralization.
The Karen Teacher Working Group would like to thank Karen News for their work producing the film.
