About the Author

Lawrence Muganga was born in Uganda, where his family fled to refugee camps upon leaving Rwanda during the mass ethnic killings during the late 1950s. After passing through Uganda’s education system and observing its financial, infrastructural, and philosophical challenges, Lawrence obtained his MA in Economic Policy Management. He currently serves as a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Educational Policy Studies at the University of Alberta. His main area of research is Authentic Learning – an education that prepares students for the real world by equipping them with real-life skills to face now and the future.

Lawrence has held positions in Canada, Ethiopia, and Rwanda focused on researching, planning, developing, implementing, and assessing policies that improve the quality of life for vulnerable populations. He has won awards for his work in program development and policy management. He currently works as a Program and Policy Advisor for the government of Alberta, where his holistic approach of uniting stakeholders towards a common cause has resulted in the creation of programs that empower people facing socioeconomic barriers.

A proud and loving father, Lawrence aspires to see his children receive a top-quality education that facilitates meaningful learning.

This book (((You Can't Make "Fish Climb Trees"))) does a fabulous job to the hard question - What is the purpose of SCHOOL today? The author proposes a new education paradigm ----Authentic Learning Education Model-----that fits the 21st century student and economies. If schools can sync with this book, then real tranformation of education has a chance. This is one book I recomment with passion.
