Lynn teaching in Uganda
It's Uganda in 2001! I was younger. I remember that I asked the teacher if I could ask the students who had eaten breakfast that day. About half the class raised their hands. When I asked them what they had eaten for breakfast, of those who had their hands raised, about half answered that they had had tea. The others answered that they had had cassava melon. It really is quite humbling to visit these rural schools. An educational economist can only get this kind of "data" when you actually visit the schools and talk with the kids.
