Cultural and Educational Glances from All Over the World
From Jeff Layne
Representatives of a group of teachers from 20 different countries share their cultural and educational backgrounds, as well as their impressions of American education. They are participants in the Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program, co-sponsored by the U.S. State Department and IREX (International Research & Exchanges Board, a nonprofit educational organization). These educators came together in Washington, DC, traveled to Northern California, and spent four weeks atCSU, Chico, where they took courses and gained field experience in Chico schools. Panelists and their countries include Ana Cuevas (Chile), Sylvia Awada (Egypt), Tina Bergiashvili (Georgia), and Aliya Kurmanova (Kazakhistan).
