In the western world, we sometimes take education for granted. That isn’t the case in less-developed areas of the world. How can education in these areas be improved and teachers trained so that kids growing up without easy access to education can still succeed?
In this week’s episode, Dave talks to Noble Kelly about just this subject. Noble is the founder of Education Beyond Borders, an organization that is “devoted to closing the global education divide through teacher professional development and community education.” Noble talks about the work of the organization in South Africa as well as other initiatives they are taking on. Most importantly, how they are helping to meet one of the United Nations Millenium Development Goals to achieve universal primary education around the world.
