Today, we visited a Ghanaian school. I met a number of teachers and students for which I presented a copy of Mr. Fisher’s 04 Classic, Five Drafts Later. The school was quite different than Berkshire. For one, the students stay in one classroom all day and it was instead the teachers that moved from class to class. Also, the school, while having roofs, was basically outside. You may find the pictures of the computer lab interesting. I spoke to the students and they were extremely respectful…..until their teacher said I was Rooney. They then nearly lost it. Let’s just say I’m getting a workout from shaking so many hands.
For the afternoon, the Ghanaian parliament(their version of Congress) held a committee meeting with us on education. We discussed laws that they have passed on education in Ghana. You can view the video below to see my memorable introduction. Getting to testify before the Ghanaian government was an experience I will never forget.
