A must-read article written by Ed Gragert from iEARN talking about the imperative of developing a culture with schools that values international education. "The next generation of American leaders will not magically learn to work well with their peers in other countries. U.S. classrooms need to help youth build these skills to ensure future cooperation on critical security issues such as the environment, combating terrorism, public health, and economic and trade relationships. The research, tools, knowledge, partners, and enthusiasm from young people are all there. Now is the time for the new education administration to explicitly encourage and support schools to try a new approach to international education to help the next generations learn to be global leaders for the future security and prosperity of our nation."
