It Takes a School
- The Extraordinary Story of an American School in the World’s #1 Failed State
- By: Jonathan Starr
- Narrated by: Malcolm Hillgartner
- Length: 7 hrs and 47 mins
Jonathan Starr is not your traditional do-gooder, and in 2009, when he decided to found Abaarso, a secondary school in Somaliland, the choice seemed crazy to even his closest friends. Why, they wondered, would he turn down a life of relative luxury to relocate to an armed compound in a breakaway region of the world's number one failed state? To achieve his mission, Starr would have to overcome profound cultural differences, broken promises, and threats to his safety and that of his staff.
