    Yup, you read the topic title correctly!

    Here's a short documentary that was posted on a great Cambodia blog I just stumbled across.



    You can also see the video here.

    It mentions in the story that the teacher isn't permitted to go to the US with the students -- the reason for that is explained in this Time story -- kudos to KK. Well worth a read

    Thanks, Somtam. Great video, and a moving story at the Time link. The US deportation law seems (like too much of America) heavy-handed (not excusing KK for joining the Crips, and all the rest, btw). I'm going to check these guys out when I'm in Phnom Penh in a few months. Tiny Toones!

    Tiny Toones looks like a great project in Phnom Penh - and fascinating how KK fell foul of the US law, got deperted to a homeland he'd never seen before - and has been on a journey alongside the kids he teaches. Inspirational. Cambodian educaiton is quite light on creative subjects such as music, art and self expression in writing - and it is always fabulous to see young Cambodians just take to these forms of self-expression. Brilliant - really worth checking out.
