Student Enrollment (age 6-18) by Village, Mae Hong Son Province

Among the different ethnic groups, the “Other” ethnic group has the lowest student enrollment rate of about 31%. The “Other” category may represent individuals who identify as Akha, Thai, Lisu, Mien, Khamu, Lua, Tai Lue, Palong, Chinese, or Burmese. The individuals in this category represent less than 2% of the survey respondents.

Villages with Primary Schools by Village

It is important to observe the location of primary schools at a village-scale, as aggregating information at the sub-district level can obscure the realities of education access by ethnic group. As was the case for the Lahu ethnic group:  the village-level map for this group revealed a lower rate of student access to primary school compared to the sub-district-level maps. 

The Lahu ethnic group was the majority ethnic group in Mae Na Toeng and Tham Lot sub-districts. And the rate of primary schools per village was also very high for these sub-districts. However, these sub-districts were lightly populated. The net Lahu population in these sub-districts accounts for only a portion of the total Lahu population in Mae Hong Son. In the Mae Na Toeng sub-district, there was only one village: a Lahu village with less than 500 members and it had a primary school. At the provincial level,  majority-Lahu villages in Mae Hong Son actually had a lower rate of in-village primary schools compared to other ethnic groups' villages.

For the majority of survey respondents who had ever attended school, primary school represented the highest level of academic achievement. Moreover, the percentage of respondents who did not complete primary school is roughly equal to the percentage of students who did complete primary school, and for whom primary school remains their highest level of formal education.
