As I watched the 60 Minutes report about the possible fabrications made by Greg Mortenson, the author of ”Three Cups of Tea,” and the questionable expenditures of his charity, Central Asia Institute, I thought of all of the kids who donated pennies for the girls in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Have you seen the 60 Minutes investigation (embedded below)? Did your students or kids read “Three Cups of Tea” or raise money for the Central Asia Institute? If so, do you plan to broach the subject with the children? How?
