The Portable Schools Summary

A Professor named Graeme Bristol and his students Bangkok came up with a solution.


Thailand is the home to undocumented migrant workers. These people don't have official paperwork giving them the permission to live and work in Thailand. It wasn't practical to build a permanent school for the families who would be moving as soon as the work at their jobsite was finished. The school could be moved from jobsite to jobsite with the workers and their children. The students from Bangkok created a school with a floor, wall and a roof. The roof is made of lightweight bamboo. They could easily take the school down then put it back up.

The Creators of this project were!

Soon the school idea turned out to be used all over the world.

Do they still use the portable school???
