Educators Learn from One Another
Schools in Liberia organized a joint training quickly when the faculty of 18 newly requesting schools suddenly wanted training before the start of the 2013 school year. They had heard reports of the successes of the local schools whose teachers had already mastered Full-Circle Learning strategies. These teachers came together with veteran Full-Circle Learning educators to share stories, projects and demonstrations. Soon the new schools had planned economic development projects to fund their service projects. Early activities at schools included marching to City Hall to advocate for better access to education and conducting radio interviews.
