Saudi Arabia 2006

Sunday, November 26, 2006

We toured Najd School, another private school that costs about $6000 a year. It is K-12 taught in Arabic, but with a strong English language acquisition component. As you can see, kids are kids the world over! we asked some tough questions regarding education in the KSA, how religion (Islam) was being taught post 9/11, and how kids with special needs were being addressed. Note the paper calling for a boycott of Danish goods after they published the disparaging cartoon of the prophet Mohammed. I passed out salt water taffy from Newport for the younger ones and just about caused a feeding frenzy! I also showed the older boys this BLOG and encouraged them to add their perspectives in the comments if they would like!
