We joined the excellent local teachers and students at the Chikutu Secondary School each day. We could barely manage to teach English when kids were sharing books six to one. We couldn’t fathom how they could learn math with no student books at all. Teachers wrote and wrote and wrote on the board, while students wasted hours of precious learning time copying into their tattered notebooks. There were no maps to learn geography, no charts, and only one chalk eraser to share between four classrooms. Yet, the students and teachers came with pure spunk and determination, ready to succeed.
