Poverty, Educational Achievement, and the Role of Courts

San Shwe Baw


In this paper, I intend to utilize the facts from a scholarly article, “Poverty, Educational Achievement, and the Role of Courts” by Michael A. Rebell, Teacher College, Columbia University, to broadly identify the differences between the educational system of the U.S.A and a much lower performing country in South East Asia, Myanmar. Myanmar has been left behind in many sectors, including education, due to the mismanagements of the previous governments. The low standard of education in the country is the legacy the current government has inherited from the former military government and whatever facts and situations referred to in this paper about Myanmar belong to the then military-ruled Myanmar.
