We would like to thank Derek Harwell ELMLE Steering Committee President International School of Amsterdam, Margaret Pringle, current Middle School Principal at Ambrit here in Rome, Catherine Dick, Emily Bridgham (and others) for organising such a superb event.
As Derek says: “Rome wasn’t built in a day. We use this statement when we are flabbergasted by or discouraged with a project but also when we are aware the project is worthwhile. When the ELMLE steering committee was considering a theme and slogan for our Rome Conference, we thought, “What takes years of work, a lot of patience, love, struggles, victories but ultimately is very worthwhile?” – Middle Schoolers! As a middle school teacher, you no doubt realize how well this statement fits with our daily work with students”
ELMLE’s inaugural Leadership and Administrator’s Conference will be held at Frankfurt International School September 26 in conjunction with the European 1:1 Conference. For more information and Registration, visit the website.
Every other month Tips for Teachers is compiled, edited and distributed by Catherine Dick at the International School of Prague from works collected from ELMLE members. Upcoming Tip themes can be found on the

Given the ad hominem arguments you present it is obvious that you haven't had a lot of education that would give you any unique insight into the strategic level aspects of this war
The hideously depressing thing is that Cubaby neg_5
Under Battista--Cuba in 1957--was a developed country. Cuba in 1957 had lower infant mortality than France, Belgium, West Germany, Israel, Japan, Austria, Italy, Spain, and Portugal. Cuba in 1957 had doctors and nurses: as many doctors and nurses per capita as the Netherlands, and more than Britain or Finland. Cuba in 1957 had as many vehicles per capita as Uruguay, Italy, or Portugal. Cuba in 1957 had 45 TVs per 1000 people--fifth highest in the world. Cuba today has fewer telephones per capita than it had TVs in 1957.
You take a look at the standard Human Development Indicator variables--GDP per capita, infant mortality, education--and you try to throw together an HDI for Cuba in the late 1950s, and you come out in the range of Japan, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Israel
