The recent situation is due to the denial of teaching by the government teachers (mostly Buddhist) in areas, where most of the villagers were forced out their villages through massive genocidal operations in late 2017.

Although there were many Rohingya teachers as well, whom used to teach children in government schools. But since 1985, Burmese discriminatory policies against the Rohingya have decreased the no. of Rohingya teachers in Arakan (Rakhine) state.

Rohingya have been deprived of formal education through discriminatory policies and govt had further made it difficult by implanting hatred among the sister communities of Rohingya in Arakan state.

Today, the literacy rate of Rohingya is yet unknown but many estimates it to be only 1 percent.

Depriving Rohingya of Education is a powerful and rooted genocidal tool of the Burmese Government. Through this effective tool, they have successfully converted Rohingya into a community of ignorant and have jailed their potentials in their created mental prison.
