Damage to Education in Kenya

“Education In Kenya Suffers at Hands of Shabab Extremists” – by Isma’il Kushkush in The New York Times

This is a devastating article about ordinary people, teachers and young people, trying to make a way forward in a climate of terrible violence.  Under the threat of Shabab, many teachers refuse to work in northern regions of Kenya.  I see Antigone in those who make the choice to return to school and teach.  And I see Ismene, whose actions are so easy to understand, so hard to blame, in those who will not return, out of fear for their lives.
