Abstract: 

Eka and a professional language instructor are asked by the founder and director of Terakoya Support to visit the Myanmar Buddhist Meditation Institute to conduct testing and to begin standardizing how Japanese language classes are taught. Clearly the director of Terakoya Support, located in Japan, is insensitive to the realities of operating a school under Myanmar's military regime, and the part-time, volunteer instructors in Myanmar are resistant to meddling by outsiders. To complicate matters, the director of Terakoya Support leaves Japan for a new job. On the eve of her trip to Myanmar, what is Eka to do? What is best for the Institute and for Terakoya Support?
