“With strong and constant resistance from various political fronts, the future of EvoS is unclear. The burden of fostering Darwin’s big idea across the islands of the ivory archipelago is on the shoulders of you and me. Working together, with shared vision and purpose, we can help shape this future to the benefit of students for decades to come. And that means shaping the future of education to help our descendants have a more complete understanding of the world and everything in it.” Glenn Geher, 2012.
