At a small, rented apartment building south of Beirut, Amani Jurdi is running a school using innovative education techniques that she hopes will teach Lebanon's next generation of leaders.Three years ago, Jurdi established Ghadi, an alternative elementary school for children of diverse backgrounds and learning abilities.This followed working as a tutor for more than a decade, during which time she became familiar with different styles of learning and challenges, including attention deficit disorder, and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder.Instead, Ghadi educates students through immersive experiences, such as real-life language learning and exams, yoga and dance classes, and with special attention for students with specific learning needs, such as ADD and ADHD, who account for around 20 percent of those enrolled.
