An ethnic Shan Buddhist monk reads at a monastery in Yangon September 17, 2012. Many Shan parents send their boys into the Buddhist monkhood where they receive a basic education better than the one in their remote and impoverished villages. Education is so poor in these villages that Shan children sometimes struggle to learn Burmese, the national language. The monkhood also gives them better protection from Myanmar's military, which is notorious for dragooning ethnic minorities as porters. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj (MYANMAR - Tags: SOCIETY RELIGION)
