What I learned about Education in Palestine A conversation with Sarah Measures
Tuesday May 28, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Central Square Library, 45 Pearl St., Cambridge

The Cambridge-Bethlehem People to People Project (CBPPP) invites you to an evening of information and discussion. Special educator Sarah Measures traveled to Bethlehem in January of 2013. In addition to meetings with educators at the universities and in the Aida refugee camp, she spent 4 days observing the new kindergarten started in collaboration with the CBPPP. She is delighted to share some of her impressions of the challenges and marvels of early education and special education in Palestine. The evening is also an opportunity to share ideas about on-going exchanges and ways to support for these efforts.

 

If you would like to see Sarah’s paper about her trip or for more information,  contact CBPPP at  bethlehemcambridge@gmail.com.
