`The most transformative thing we can do to education in Africa today, is to put a computer in the hands of every teacher, and to ensure that they have access to the Internet. This is a much higher priority than putting computers in the hands of the students. Ideally both teacher and student should have a computer.
The second most transformative thing we can do in education in Africa, is to get parents engaged more actively in the education of children. Having had my children educated on three continents (Africa, Europe, and America), I had not realized how we (African parents) are not sufficiently engaged in the education of our children, compared to parents in Europe, Asia, and America. Teachers need to encourage parents to be more involved. It’s an important collaboration`.
