Rights groups and activists have welcomed Bangladesh's decision to allow Rohingya children living in sprawling refugee camps to receive a formal education, calling it a "positive step".

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya children, who fled a brutal crackdown in neighbouring Myanmar along with their parents in 2017, only receive primary education in temporary learning centres set up by international NGOs and the UN children's agency UNICEF.

On May 13, a group of Rohingya refugee education leaders had the rare chance to ask some of the questions that had been weighing on their minds for more than two years.

For the first time, they were meeting representatives from the United Nations and international NGOs tasked with providing education to about half a million Rohingya refugee children living in camps in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh.

Minutes of the meeting obtained by Al Jazeera, show how the community leaders questioned the officials about the slow effort to give refugees formal education, the absence of a Myanmar curriculum in the camps, and the lack of consultation with the community.

Two years on, has the world forgotten the Rohingya children?

South China Morning Post
Opinion



Fatima is acutely aware of the importance of school. The 13-year-old fled Myanmar two years ago with nothing. She now lives in the world’s biggest refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar with her parents, two sisters and grandfather. She has faced difficulties most children her age never will. She wants to be a teacher, but not just any teacher. She wants to teach girls because when girls are educated, they teach others.

Extremism growing among Rohingya children in Cox’s Bazar camps

AsiaNews

Bangladesh doesn’t allow refugee children to attend schools with their Bangladeshi peers. A radical group, Hefazat-e-Islam Bangladesh, fills the educational gap with its own 1,200 madrassas. Activists warn against the danger of future terrorist attacks.

Cox’s Bazar (AsiaNews) – Abdur Rahaman, 12, a Rohingya refugee has lived in a camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh for more than two years. When he was home, in Myanmar, he wanted to be a doctor, but now everything has changed. “Here I cannot go to school. My parents enrolled me in a madrassa. Now I will never be a doctor."

Like Abdur, thousands of other children cannot go to regular school and are increasingly becoming "prey" to Islamic radicalism taught in 1,200 Islamic schools.
