Don’t miss this TEDtalk from a remarkable Indian education innovator.  A HWHTW favorite (see India: Grandmothers electrify rural communities)!

“In Rajasthan, India, an extraordinary school teaches rural women and men — many of them illiterate — to become solar engineers, artisans, dentists and doctors in their own villages. It’s called the Barefoot College, and its founder, Bunker Roy, explains how it works.”
