Reading, Riting and Rithmetic

I am endlessly amused -- and partially horrified -- that "hard work" is one word according to the Ministry of Education in Cameroon. The motto of the Ministry -- painted on every school sign across the country -- is Peace, Hardwork, Progress. Walking around the village the other day, I noticed for the first time that in Bekondo the Primary School advocates not only "Hardwork" but also "Progres."

(In fairness, most of the country speaks French, so their slogans would be in French and are probably spelled correctly -- I hope.)
