Good News

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Actually there is some general truth to that line of thought. If you want to entice qualified, experienced lecturers to Bumfuck Cambodia, a brand new, modern and fully equipped laboratory and lecture hall may go alot better than "gather around in the dust under the old mango tree for a lecture on electronic capacitors, students!". Now of course i'm not saying the new building WILL actually be modern or well-equipped, but theoretically "if you build it they will come" is not entirely invalid. Maybe more like "IF you build it right, you have SOME chance of a successful educational program coming together".
Sounds a bit like Smith's invisible hand if you ask me.

Again,, only if you have good and qualified teachers, which means paying a good salary.

If I had the choice between getting a job at a school with extra good salary, perks and conditions, but teaching under a mango tree, or a new building and fuck all else,,,,, I know what I would choose.

Is there such a thing as a 69 year old [ me ] hippy in Cambodia.

The modern way to learn is '' online '' . You don't need no building or proper armchair seats .
It's people like you who are stuck with old hippy ideas from the past about education and learning.

Yes, but even idiots know that money spent on land and buildings, is better spent on buying those laptops and providing wifi internet access so students can sit under a mango tree learning. It's got something to do with keeping up with modern technology .

Well come on all you school teachers out there. Don't let this be an argument between two idiots as to who is right or not.
