Awesome story. This para just floored me. Both for the need to be met as
well as the way it was done by circumventing Head Office:

"The CS teacher was excited and promised to teach Blockly the next day. But
there was another issue compromising the class. Due to a lack of funds, the
school could not afford two CS teachers, so half the school was unable to
take CS. I asked what a teacher's salary was. $100 per month. So I went to
an ATM and bought them a second teacher for the next year."

One of the odd occasions where one solution really was to just throw some
money against it.
