Having spent a lot of time observing schools in rural Northeast Cambodia I was keen to hear the advice for young people from teachers working in these areas. The local UWS schools are staffed by a combination of Government teachers and local community teachers who were members of the local village and who wanted to take a role in the running of the schools now that they had been established.
I spoke with two of these community teachers. What advice did they have for young people in their care?
‘Learning and knowledge is so important. From that they can follow their dream. You can find a job, but only if you have the knowledge.’
