Well, some of them do anyway. You see, Bangladesh is a delta that stands at the confluence of several major rivers, making it particularly vulnerable to flooding. When flooding does it occur, it makes it especially difficult for children in certain regions to attend school. In the shadow of global climate change, this flooding has become both more frequent and more severe.
This dilemma prompted a man named Mohammed Rezwan to invest $500 in a new idea: boat schools. In 1998, he founded Shidhulai Swanirvar Sangstha, a nonprofit organization that has since launched 22 boats and reached almost 70,000 children. According to the New York Times, "Mr. Rezwan designed the schools by modifying traditional Bangladeshi wooden boats called noka."
These boats have been outfitted with classrooms, libraries, adult education centers, solar power, and Wi-fi. The boat schools are registered with the Bangladeshi Education Ministry and are surely among the most buoyant of education innovations.
