the Government of Bangladesh blocks for education for rohingya children, while awaiting the children's return to Myanmar.

It concludes Human Rights Watch in a report entitled "Are we not people?". The report is published on Tuesday.

In the 81-page report concludes the New York-based organization that about 400,000 rohingya children are excluded from receiving instruction in the bangladeshi curriculum schools outside their camps.

Over a million rohingya refugees living in Bangladesh. The vast majority are women and children.

Bangladesh has made it clear that it does not want the rohingya must stay on indefinitely. But to deprive children of their education, exacerbating the just the damage on the children and will not resolve the refugee situation more quickly, says Bill Van Esveld from Human Rights Watch.

the Restrictions were introduced as part of the bangladeshi government's informal education program.
