Pupils at St Patrick school - Yangon (Burma)
Description: If many countries in South-East and Est Asia share that same fundamental respect for authority and that same love for learning by-heart, their students have numerous opportunities to develop outside schools ? via the media, Internet and extra-curricular activities ? their skills and sense of creativity. These opportunities scarcely exist in Burma. Internet, one of the few windows opened to the outside world, is a regular victim of censorship and power cuts. Even special interest books, on art, music or English, for example, are expensive and hard to find, says Soe Khaing:

?When my university had to close because of the 1988 events, I found myself with a lot of free time on my hands. I was a guitar player at the time, so I thought I?d take the opportunity to improve my skills. But no matter how hard I tried, I couldn?t find any book I could use to teach myself. Tapes and music sheets were very rare and expensive as well. I hence stagnated, burning with the desire to study in a music school.?
