A Privileged Education

Yacinta's Story: 'The lengths I went to get an education' from Camfed on Vimeo.

We are indeed lucky here in the USA. I spent most of my day online virtually attending Educon. That also would not be possible in countries without an internet connection. We are indeed lucky. Are we helping others in the world?

I wonder if this girl's story would resonate with our students today, or if they would just write it off as being 'third world poverty issues.' Then I wonder how hard they would struggle if someone came in and forbade them to go to school. Would they fight for the right again? Would they be different students as a result of having to fight for their right to a good education?

Nice find. A great video - even as a writing prompt, eh?
