The Art of Education: Happiness and the school administrator

As a school administrator, I wonder if happiness was a concept I gave up when I chose this path. Maybe giving up happiness was in the fine print at the bottom of my internal contract to go the admin route.

Sean Purdy's curator insight, November 20, 2015 12:54 PM

The Association des Femmes pour le Développement et la Solidarité, or “Afdes” is an organization that has targeted the education of women in exclusive and rural areas of the country of Morocco.  Thier main goal of their introduced educational is to increase the influence and involvement of women in the economic development and democratic process.  These areas have been dominated by males for many years in Morocco and Afdes is hoping to create a more balanced and healthy society.  They have teamed up with the department for literacy to give many women valuable general education to better understand and be an effective independent member of society.  To do this, the women in their programs go through various courses to achieve the final knowledge that they desire.  They will commonly go through about 300 hours of schooling to learn basic reading, writing, and numeracy skills.  While this may seem like a large amount of time, remember that many of these women have had little or no previous education at all, and learning from the ground up the fairly complex ideas of language, both reading and writing it, as well as sufficient amount of mathematical skills in just three hundred hours is not an easy accomplishment.  Think about all the years you spent in grade school learning all of these things.  Overall, I believe that the Afdes organization is doing a good job of providing valuable education to these rural women in Morocco, giving them life options that they would have never even considered previously.  The introduction of a larger national group of women into the economic development and politics of Morocco will likely be a positive improvement as well.
