Letters From Ghana (#3)
Hello From the SOLES Teams in Ghana!
We are nearing the end of our four days of training with school proprietors. Next we go to the beautiful seaside city of Cape Coast. Ghana may be a different country, but there are far more similarities with education in the US than there are differences. Part of our training is for proprietors to develop a mission statement for their schools and one school proprietor's mission statement includes 'bridging the gap' with regard to equity-- a familiar story in America. The motivation and energy of these school leaders is palpitating.
A few observations:
I've included a photo of my team in Ghana-- The Kumasi Team: Corinne, Raketa, Melodie, and myself. They have worked incredibly hard this week and USD needs to be proud of our students and alums on this team. In the next letter I'll share news about Dr. Spencer's Tema Team. By the way, Tema is a sister city of San Diego!
I leave you with: domso domso ("off and on" as the electricity goes) bananas, kelewele , fou fou, kente cloth, pawpaws, local chiefs, Black Stars (the national football team)
I still haven't told you about the grass-cutters. Maybe in the next letter.
