Friday, Dec. 1st Progress, progress, progress!

Our day began with a meeting with Davis, the former Director of Studies at Muko High School. He was well liked by students and faculty, in fact, everyone speaks of him as “a good man”. We met for three hours and Davis agreed to begin at once to help us plan for the upcoming school year which begins on Feb. 4, 2018. 

The teacher from Muko High School who we implicated in the beating of the student came to the office to tell us his side of the story. He  read our blog and felt upset about the exaggerated story, as he said.  We listened to his side carefully and respected his decision to come and talk to us. In hindsight, we should have checked both sides before telling everyone what our children said had happened to them. Everyone is realizing how violence against another person increases the anger, frustration, and further violence. 

I worked with the MUSIC students for several hours this afternoon. They are improving every time I visit and I am so proud of them. Howard is a good teacher and it is a blessing that he does such a good job with them.

We interviewed three more Head Teachers tonight finishing at 10:00 pm this evening.  We will soon be able to tell you the results. We are meeting with the Bishop tomorrow when we will sign the Memo of Understanding. Our Board of Governors will assume their responsibilities on Monday. 

Off to bed …..sending love- Karen
