This is a Migrant Education-run school with 280 students and 14 teachers. Twelve of the Burmese students are in an integration program where they took intensive Thai classes for 1-2 hours a day so they could keep up with other students!

The school uses curriculum developed by World Education, including an English curriculum used for the past 5 years.

In China, World Education’s ConnectEd project works with migrant schools around Beijing and Shanghai that have insufficient teaching facilities.

For those migrant schools that do not seem able to absorb a computer lab or afford new books and tools, ConnectEd has a mobile van filled with books and hardware that provides digital access and library resources to multiple schools on a weekly basis.
