A dilemma in education

Knowledge is the most valuable thing in your life. Everyone needs a lot of knowledge in their daily life, and education is the best way to improve your life.

In the Kingdom of Cambodia, education is improving day by day in both public and private schools in order to fullfil students’ needs. Some parents enrol their children in extra language classes such as English, French, Korean and Chinese so their sons and and daughters can be more employable and able to communicate with non-Cambodians.

Sometimes children are able to speak a foreign lang-uage better than their own.

There are a lot of private schools that are popular with those who can afford them, becuase the quality of edu-cation is better, there is more class discipline and  they have modern equipment.

In this edition of Lift, we meet a talented, confident young man who is competing in the Asia-Pacific Debating Championship in Taiwan.

We also find a teacher who has skill in teaching deaf and blind children. She shares her experiences and explains the challenges involved in teaching these children.

These two people have used their education to further their lives.

Lift would like to thank all of you who read our public-ation, and especially those who enter our weekly lucky draw.
