More > the sickening gap between the recent past and Africa's prodigious future. Chapter One tries to deliberate on the repulsive legacy of the "typical" African leadership and the case for change. In Chapter Two, I attempt to discuss the imperative to fan the embers of the Afrocentric leadership revolution that has begun already. Chapter Three briefly explores the need to embrace an education archetype for leadership in Africa: one that posits a binary view or philosophy I call "Heart x Mind" - where "education" is not exaggeratedly reliant on cognitive abilities or superior academic achievements but one that is proselytised in sound value systems. You will certainly enjoy reading this book! It's quick, vivid, provocative and immersive. More importantly, it's beautifully written, intimately reported and passionately argued.< Less

She began taking rescued animals into classrooms to help teach the children about animal behavior, care and health but soon found out using an animal helped extrapolate expressions of emotions which would otherwise be harbored or unexpressed by the child. It also incorporated self-esteem where all else had failed. Using a natural catalyst, puppies and kittens, to teach responsible behavior proved to be extremely effective. Teachers began requesting materials to help teach history, geography, culture, and language. The curriculum was nominated by teachers and administrators in 1996 and went on to win the 1st place Golden Bell award from the ASBA as the best new curriculum that year.< Less
