The school does have several advantages over many rural schools I have visited during my time in Myanmar. Many schools, both government and private, have more than one class per room. At R.E.C., each class of children has a separate room. However, there are no real walls and the flimsy bamboo only rises half way up the trunks that form beams. As we watch the lesson progress, it becomes harder to concentrate or hear as the grade 7 English class that is 3 feet away from us starts loudly chanting lessons by heart.
