Myanmar’s education system is in a very weakened state. The physical condition and
human resource capacity of the system is poor by any standard, and teachers, whether in schools,
colleges or universities, have few opportunities and little incentive for professional development.
A process of recovery is getting underway, but it will take years before significant improvements
are evident. Major cultural change is required in the style of leadership and management at all
levels of government, and there is also a desperate need for more financial resources. This paper
documents the current state of the education system in Myanmar and advances three priority
areas for immediate attention.
