MySQL Being Taught in Rwandan High School Classroom

This weekend had the pleasure of visiting a secondary school in Kiziguro village in the Eastern province of Rwanda. While walking around the school grounds, I walked into a random classroom and was amazed at what I found on the chalkboard: MySQL syntax lessons.

Not even my "prestigious" public High School taught MySQL and here I am in a poor Rwandan district with MySQL all over the chalkboard. More fuel to add to the fire around the US science education gap continuing to grow larger.
