Myanmar-Monastery Schools Photo Gallery

In this June 12, 2015 photo, a novice Buddhist monk, foreground, laughs as he plays with a set of Lego soldiers and war-ships at a classroom with no teacher at Bahan Thone Htat monastic school in Yangon, Myanmar. Public education in Myanmar is in crisis, with crumbling schools, ill-trained teachers and many families unable to afford books, uniforms and other expenses. So schooling in a monastery is the only education that many children in Myanmar ever get, especially rural and poor children. (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)
