Only some schools can reopen in Maungtaw District due to ongoing security concerns. Even though Thadingyut holiday period has ended, many school doors remain closed, state media reported.
So far, 50 schools have been reopened while 365 schools are still closed since the violent attacks on border police outposts on October 9.
According to the Sittway District Education Office, authorities are planning to assist schoolchildren who left their homes due to fear after the October-9 attacks in Rakhine State, to continue their education at suitable schools.
