Although "one college student per village" may not sound like much, I can easily imagine its importance (I can still remember the impact of our 'one college student', Duff Crerar, from the time I attended school in rural Ontario; I fginally met him years later when I was teaching at Grande Prairie Regional College in Alberta) and also note that it's the tip of a wider presence. Like...
