Fwd: [MLE] Enthusiasm and dedication of teachers

Dear MLE Friends,
In the Philippines MLE is implemented large scale by the government. Today I saw a  article on "Folk knowledge and  MLE" in a national newspaper at which prof. Ricardo Ma. Duran Nolasco,   shares his experience with the programme. A few quotes:
"The remarkable thing about these training events was the overwhelming enthusiasm and dedication of the teachers, mostly in their 20s and early 30s, in producing primers, alphabet books, big books, small books and lesson exemplars in their own languages. Never before in our education history have I seen production of educational materials in native languages attempted in such a scale."

"... there is much to learn about our past and our heritage from our country’s communities. In promoting such knowledge in formal education, we also uphold their right to exist, their right to reproduce their language, and their right to practice their own culture.


It will be great if we can see such large scale in implementation with that enthusiasm in India!

Regards,

Karsten
