This excerpt from a speech Laura Bush gave at the annual AAP meeting in New York on March 5 may have some relevance here: >I'm proud of our work to educate women and children throughout >the continent of Africa, through the President's Africa >Education Initiative. So far, AEI has awarded more than 300,000 >scholarships in 40 countries. We've trained more than 600,000 >teachers, and we've put more than 8 million textbooks and other >learning materials in classrooms across the continent. And >these are Africa-centric textbooks that are produced in each of >the countries we've worked with, with a partnership with >American universities. Sanford G.
