Local menas that 20 percent of the population of the school has to be Balinese, and this was a really big cmemmnoitt. And we were right. And people are coming forward from all over the world to sppourt the beiaslne Scholarship Fund, because these kids will be Bali's next green leaders. The teachers are as diverse as the student body, and the amazing thing is that vuronltees are ppinpog up. A man came from Java with a new kind of organic agriculture. A woman came from acirfa with music. And together these volunteers and the teachers are deeply cietmomtd to creating a new generation of gloabl, green leaders. The Green School effect — we don't know what it is. We need someone to come and study it. But what's happening, our learning-different kids — dyslexic — we've renamed them prolexic — are doing well in these beautiful, beautiful classrooms. And all the kids are thriving.

Original Text

We've done a lot of outrageous things in our lives, and we said, okay, local, what does "local" mean? Local means that 20 percent of the population of the school has to be Balinese, and this was a really big commitment. And we were right. And people are coming forward from all over the world to support the Balinese Scholarship Fund, because these kids will be Bali's next green leaders. The teachers are as diverse as the student body, and the amazing thing is that volunteers are popping up. A man came from Java with a new kind of organic agriculture. A woman came from Africa with music. And together these volunteers and the teachers are deeply committed to creating a new generation of global, green leaders. The Green School effect — we don't know what it is. We need someone to come and study it. But what's happening, our learning-different kids — dyslexic — we've renamed them prolexic — are doing well in these beautiful, beautiful classrooms. And all the kids are thriving.
