Book Description Profile Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 236 x 154 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Can education be run as a profitable business and still be driven by a humanitarian vision? SABIS(R) shows the answer is yes. Now with 60 schools in 15 countries and over 60,000 students, SABIS(R) is a global education company committed to improving lives. The book is a journey through time - tracing the company from its humble origins in 1886 Mount Lebanon, through the civil war to the present day. It s also a journey through geographies, from Kurdistan to Katrina - from the first international schools in war-torn northern Iraq, to the first charter school to reopen after the hurricane devastated inner city New Orleans. SABIS(R) goes where other educational providers are unwilling to tread, helping to rebuild lives shattered by war and natural disaster. It s finally a journey through the minds of committed educators, watching as they grapple with the fundamental question of how we educate young people in the virtues that have stood the test of time, whilst still enabling them to be prepared for a future of unknown possibilities.
