Thoughts from Afghanistan

I have to share this piece from a college buddy of mine who is currently in Afghanistan. Scott is a 23 year military veteran who is now serving across the big pond as a military adviser, trainer, and mentor to the Afghan National Security Forces.

Please read his thoughts on the educational vacuum that exists over there, and who seems to be doing a better job filling it.

Thanks for sharing Scott's post. It reinforces my belief in the power of education. My students get tired of hearing me telling them this, but they need to hear it. '

Things will be quiet at my blog for a few days. We're heading to Disney World. While it's not really my scene, I'm looking forward to time with the family.

Hope all is well.
