Education in the Karenni Camps refugee camps in Thailand is limited and basic. Currently educational assistance to Karenni refugees from early childhood development to high school education is primarily supported by international non-governmental organizations and individuals and there are very few educational opportunities beyond 10th grade. There are currently only 5 post-10th grade education programs available to the Karenni and these are largely confined in Karenni Camp.
