Longtime Emma Willard leader will run Abaarso school (Somaliland)

TROY-: The Abaarso School of Science and Technology is about as far from Emma Willard school as one can get. Set in a leafy enclave of Troy, Emma Willard caters to a select group of privileged young high school women from around the world as well as New York. Tuition runs more than $63,000 for boarding students. Jane Fonda and Kirsten Gillibrand went to school there.

Abaarso consists of squat concrete buildings surrounded by a high security wall in the scrublands of  Somaliland in the Horn of Africa. Tuition is $1,800. Many of the students come from nomadic families who follow their herds of camel or sheep throughout the seasons.
