In recent news, I accepted a challenge. The challenge is to write a more accurate history for the Malawi schools. My mission is to create a more accurate national history text to teach students from. Seems benign enough. But this task is easier said than done.
I have modern history, from colonization to present day, but am going to have to dig deep in order to build a text with pre-colonization history. Of course, I could go through archeological sites and get info that way, but I want the people’s history. I know, I know. I am being difficult.
But the project came to me when I was discussing some of the reform ideas I have for education with an African friend named John. right away, he put me in touch with two fellow Malawi natives, Felix and Gucci. Gucci is the teacher. In fact, he is a volunteer teacher who runs his own nonprofit, grassroots organization dedicated to the education of his nation. Felix is a regional leader.
between the four of us, we are determined to see that some reforms are made. In fact, I am getting ready to send him a special reform that is written to create a green state or country. It creates job, industries, and energy possibilities for whoever takes the initiative in the reform proposal.
I would love to enact some of my reforms elsewhere as a test to show that the reforms work. Perhaps I will get to. But will I ever get America to wake up enough to notice the same? That is my dilemma.
As for the other updates…
I am Stil waiting for a response from a couple of media groups. I will not go to propaganda sites that promote hate, greed, or “alternative” truth. Lies are still lies, no matter what you call them.
