This is an important article about the struggle of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh to get an education beyond the first few grades. It doesn’t just speak to the oppressive treatment of refugees by the Bangladeshi government but to the role that the education has always played in the struggles of the oppressed. In his monumental work “Black Reconstruction in America,” W.E.B. Du Bois discusses how the first public schools for whites & Blacks in the US were built by former slaves under Black Reconstruction in the South. In the US struggles for civil rights, education still plays a central role for the Black, Latino, & Native American communities & there have been massive urban struggles over the issue. Denying education to the oppressed is fundamental to keeping them subordinated. These struggles by Rohingya refugees & in the US are extremely important politically to their liberation.
