Recent reports on out-of-school children in Thailand suggest that providing alternative education for migrant children is urgently needed. More than 10% of Thailand’s out-of-school children (OOSC) were found in the Thailand-Myanmar border districts of Tak province. Thus, migrant learning centers (MLCs), established by the migrant community, are an important alternative service provider, providing learning opportunities for the marginalized out-of-school migrant children. This qualitative case study discovered the roles of MLCs in providing alternative approaches to basic education including the accredited non-formal primary education for children of Myanmar migrant workers. The study gives insight to policymakers and practitioners to consider the importance of MLCs and to enhance the competencies of MLCs especially in providing quality basic education for OOSC.
