Myanmar aims to correct education errors

New civilian government starts to improve an education system neglected under decades of military rule.

    The education system in Myanmar has suffered badly through decades of military rule.

    Learning and teaching skills were largely neglected out of fear that an educated population could threaten the country's stability.

    The new partly civilian government, however, wants to rectify mistakes made by its predecessors.
