Just an Errror

Siem Reap’s Teacher Training College could be the best of its kind in Cambodia, thanks to the cooperation with and assistances from various international organizations and local NGOs, and for sure their own commitment for betterment. Several multi-story buildings have been constructed; greenswards are well taken care of. It is even proud of the traffic signs planted inside the school compound telling drivers not to park or turn left. Littering outside designated bins is not well accepted, as throwaway plastic bag or paper was hardly found whenever I were there. It is the school that turned away a construction proposal worth about $40,000, considering having a single-story library building in the compound is not a good idea.

However, I cannot understand why no one has paid attention on their no-pain-no-gain proverb plate, when such an error could be easily figured out. Considering they also train English-language teachers, it is even more a clumsy work. Surprisingly it also has a decent English-language website: http://www.pttcsiemreap.com

The proverb plate with ignored errors.

    >_< why single building of library is not a good idea??

    Perhaps the land there is just too expensive to built a single-story building. They needed multi-story building. -_-;

    Maybe they refused a library because they already have a beautiful and big library building with great architectural value (a renovated sixties building)? So why waste their empty land that is used for environmental and agricultural education for a second library building that probably even won’t fit to the architectural style of the college?

    Yeah, probably saying no to the proposal was just the right thing they should did. It is much better than get-whatever-it-is-as-long-as-it-is-free.
