Met this morning with the Governor, Deputy Governor and Director of Education to discuss education, long identified by the Governor as his top priority for development in the province. We settled on sites for five school construction projects as presented by MGEN Freakley during his visit last month. We also arranged for ceremonial openings of CERP-supported wells at two schools. The Panjshiris informed us of GOA plans, led by Ministry of Education, to build eight more schools in the province. Indeed, the Governor was keeping an intense pace of school groundbreakings: two yesterday in the southern part of the valley, three more today in Khenj. They also announced the grand opening of the Teachers Training College for Oct. 11, to be attended by First VP Massoud and Education Minister Atmer. (Note: MGEN Freakley, COL Schlatter and the PRT have all shown a keen interest in sparking progress on the TCC, which has sat idle and empty for months.) Further, they told us about the construction of a vocational school in Fruhbal, directly across the river from the PRT; an engineer in Kabul had financed the endeavor. All in all, an excellent week for the Governors highest priority. As a school group chanted to a PRT team after distribution of supplies a few days ago, shaping education means shaping the future.
