DHAKA, Bangladesh 

The Bangladeshi government has allowed Rohingya children living in refugee camps to access formal education in a move welcomed by rights activists.

“The government has decided to allow formal education to Rohingya children under Myanmar’s curriculum so that they can continue their education in Myanmar if the repatriation process is started in the future,” Mahbub Alam Talukder, Bangladesh’s refugee relief and repatriation commissioner, told Anadolu Agency on Wednesday.

Citing a meeting held earlier this week, he said children up to the age of 14 will get school education and those older than 14 will get skills training.
