I was struck by something this morning. I was updating some info on our team site and I saw an OxFam banner on the page that said “$20 is enough to buy a blackboard to improve the quality of education for children in Cambodia.”
$20 gets a blackboard for a classroom full of kids to expand their minds and explore the knowledge of the world. When I think back to all the things that now swim around in my head that were introduced to me with chalk at the front of the classroom, the power of that surface can’t be underestimated.
