Education still a luxury to thousands of Rohingya children living in refugee camps

The young generation of Rohingya muslims living in various refugee camps across Bangladesh have found access to education to be a big challenge. Because of the limited educational opportunities for them, UNICEF calls the refugee children "a lost generation."
However, there are attempts being made to provide proper education opportunities to these children. More than 1,200 temporary schools teach English, math, Burmese, science and the arts to about 140,000 children between the ages of 6 and 14, just over a quarter of the more than half a million refugee children living in the camp, according to UNICEF.
