“Webale Kwegesiya” – A Math Teacher’s Experience in an African Village

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How do you establish a community school in a place beyond the end of the road? How do the practices of a student-centered classroom interact with an exam-driven culture? What do you do when everyone in the district is failing “maths”?
