To effectively implement a nationwide Afghanistan education system and education of the Afghanistan National Army. Existing teaching methods from the American school system could easily be implemented by having school officials, educators and students held accountable by making advancement measurable without using large sums of money. As I have experienced in the field as a member of the U S Army Embedded Training Team, Camp Mike Spann mentoring staff of the MazarE Sharif Regional Afghanistan Army Hospital from July 2008 to July 2009, the main problem was that we almost always handed out sums of money to entice the staff to co-operate which often results in lack of motivation due to the knowledge that funds are already earmarked for their benefit. By witholding these funds until progress is made, the Afghan staff are made accountable to make strides forward and learn from their mentors. By recipients being accountable and using other countries' resources, I was able to command the Regional Afghan Army Hospital at Mazar E Sharif to follow set rules and make significant learning and knowledge in the field of emergency medicine, without an additional cost of funding which was often practiced without marked improvements in personnel qualification. By just implementing the serious approach that financial aid is tied to measurable accomplishment in skill proficiency, the money used to aid the Afghan Army and the nationwide Afghanistan school system was put to good use and it significantly reduced the abuse of precious financial resources.
