Amun Shea: Relevant rural education
Our technical vocational Ag-Business classroom
Quality education signifies academic and technical formation relevant to the students environment. For our students in Amún Shéa, the environment is rural with limited basic services, very little demand for labor and little production beyond traditional subsistence agriculture. Relevant education means matching the local potential resources and opportunities with a learning program to help prepare young people with the skills needed to take advantage of those opportunities and potentials.
We have incorporated a new technical vocational high school course in our 2018 program at Amún Shéa, within this visión of relevant education. This technical vocational course is Ag-Business, still within the pilot stage of development. Fifteen high schools in El Salvador are implementing this course as a pilot: fourteen public schools and Amún Shéa.
An added feature of this new program is that it goes beyond technical training and includes creative thinking, business planning, personal leadership, accounting and other important personal skills needed for entrepreneurship. We are very happy to form part of the pilot phase of this new program, as it fits very well to what we have been developing on our own.
We greatly appreciate your support for quality education in Morazán. Thank you
