A wonderful look at education really working!

Friends, please watch the video found at the link below.

I just completed reading James Tooley’s book, The Beautiful Tree.  It’s all about how the poor of India, China and Africa have started thousands of private schools to educate their own, giving up on governments that have miserably failed them and their children.  This video, sent to me by a wonderful composer and musician and friend, Geoff Levin, is a resounding example of such action, and is remarkable.  It’s only a preview, about three minutes long.  I think you’ll be very impressed. I have no “interest” in this film, I’m not sure who made it.  I just think it’s important and eye-opening, and fills one with hope for the future (as Tooley’s fine book does).

HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone!
