Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "The Leaders Who Ruined Africa and the Generation Who Can Fix It" by Fred Swaniker.

In the speech “The Leaders Who Ruined Africa and the Generation Who Can Fix it,” Fred Swaniker discusses Africa’s past leaders and his hopes for its future leaders.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Education & Knowledge, Power & Greed, and Social Change & Revolution as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"How do people create change?", "What is the goal of education?", and "How does power corrupt?"
