Knowledge, Learning, Community
Just a little contrast to the Commonwealth of Learning diatribe (see below): "59-year-old twin sisters Sri Rossyati and Sri Irianingsih have opened the free school where their 550 students receive not only an education, but meals, a uniform, shoes, pencils and books, things that many children in Indonesia cannot afford or take for granted." Oh yeah, the school costs the sisters $1700 a month to run. You won't see these economics at the private schools. "The other schools have expensive books but at this school, they even give him milk so he can grow up strong."
