Why don’t more countries get it…and do it? Promotion of education is a national and international imperative. My former employer, the Qatar Foundation, established by the former Emir of Qatar and Her Highness, is a state of the art example of how to make education exciting. Link it to research and community development and you have the perfect equation.
And, yes, I was a proud member of the QF family. It’s changed me as an educator, profoundly, forever.
