Title: Free education costs in Myanmar
Date of publication: 22 June 2010
Description/subject: Once again, parents in military-ruled Myanmar are counting the cost of a primary education for their children in public schools. It is an annual ritual that comes with the beginning of the new school year, which coincides with the onset of the monsoon rains in June. Although the Southeast Asian nation has laws affirming that primary school education is free and compulsory, the economic headaches parents have to cope with at this time of the year suggest otherwise, according to a parent from Yangon, the former capital, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Title: Myanmar: The Management Process for Constructing Primary Schools and Providing School Furniture
Date of publication: 2002
Description/subject: "This management case study has been prepared on the basis of experiences gained in the UNDP-funded and UNESCO-implemented project Improving Access of Children, Women and Men of the Poorest Communities to Primary Education for All. The infrastructure component of the education project has been impressive both in terms of the quantity of school buildings repairs, extended or replaced and in the efficiency of its implementation. These impressive achievements are due in large part to the lessons learned in the two previous projects. The resulting building and furniture designs are relevant for study by other persons and organizations working on educational infrastructure throughout Mynamar. More widely applicable, however, is the management process that has been developed. This will be useful not only in Myanmar but also to other countries involved in rural school construction programmes that rely on community participation...

Memorandum of Partnership for School Construction; B. Bill of Quantities; C. Monthly School Site Progress Report; D. Database: Monitoring Indicators; E. Work Plan; F. Funiture Process Checklist.
