Learning from Ugandan Models of Education
Katherine (Katie) Frain, a senior in elementary education major at Shippensburg University, Pennsylvania, took part in a four-week trip to Uganda during the summer 2014 to study the models of education in the African country.
Dr. Margarita Rose, professor and chair of the economics department at King’s College, led a team of 12 educators and college students this summer to study models of education in Uganda, Africa. The trip was called, "Learning from Uganda" and was awarded a $75,000 grant from the Fulbright-Hayes Group Projects Abroad Program.
Participants in the project saw first-hand the harsh conditions of living in Uganda but sensed a deeper beauty in the spirits of its citizens. Each of the group members processed in his or her own way what the month-long experience in Uganda had meant, how it had impacted their lives, and how it would impact their students and their communities in the future.
