New Karenni Literature Teachers Trained

The teaching of Karenni literature* and culture has been given a boost this week, with the training of an extra 50 teachers, who will be posted at various locations around Kayah State.

Interestingly, the report by the Kantarawaddy Times gives a breakdown on the content of their training which is ‘inline with the five points of the curriculum, namely mother tongue, traditional culture and customs, famous Saopha’s from the Kayah area, staff rules and regulations and ethics and ICT (computer and internet skills).

*As usual ‘literature’ is a slight misnomer, in the sense that fiction in the Karenni languages is not being taught, only language, history and traditional knowledge.
