In School In Society: Early Childhood In Myanmar Migrant Communities in Thailand (VSO Report) Over the last twenty years, there has been an influx of migration into Thailand from neighbouring Myanmar, often to take up so-called ‘3D’ jobs (dirty, dangerous and difficult). These working conditions have a direct impact on the development of young children as they live in precarious environments, with migrant children representing one of the most disadvantaged groups in Thailand when it comes to early childhood. VSO Thailand/Myanmar’s research in migrant communities shows how education, both through Thai state schools and migrant learning centres, remains the key to integration within society, and to accessing other vital services ranging from nutrition and healthcare to Thai language and necessary life skills. http://www.theguardian.com/global-development/gallery/2013/may/13/burma-migrant-children-thailand-in-pictures
