The Great Divide: Life of a Teacher


Mitty Steele is an excellent insightful blogger, based in Phnom Penh and well worth following.

Mitty Steele is a Cambodian-American writer, photographer, and overall communications professional. She was born in Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge regime and immigrated to the United States with her family when she was five years old.

Her blogs are beautifully written, and what I admire is how she digs underneath the surface to bring well-researched stories that also reflect on her own family background.

In this article Mitty examines the life of a teacher before – and after – the Pol Pot years, and shows why the current education system in Cambodia receives too little investment from the State. Well worth reading. The Great Divide: Life of a Teacher
