the good road
Hyderabad, India: One in a Billion

Earl Bridges and Craig Martin travel to Hyderabad, India to meet up with Earl?s old college friend, Harish Mamtani. Harish runs a private school designed to help underprivileged students who are eager to learn with a better education than can be received elsewhere in the community. Coming from an entrepreneurial background, Harish knows that innovation is the key to making possible the overwhelming task of providing effective education to students in poor communities. Craig and Earl also visit Hyderabad?s historic Golconda Fort and Charminar Mosque, as The Good Road team steps back in time to India?s ancient history. And, of course, they indulge in some of the best street food Hyderabad has to offer. Later, on a walk through a top rated private school in Richmond, Virginia, Harish explains to Earl why private education in India is critical for the poorest of the poor versus the traditional US model of private education for the wealthy. Harish works hard to provide access to the poor of Hyderabad through private schools, as a necessary supplement to India?s public education infrastructure.
