From Education WeekBy Anthony Jackson
I appreciated a comment posted on this blog a couple weeks back about supporting American teachers and celebrating the great achievements in the American schools, particularly as international comparisons have put the spotlight on school systems abroad. My colleague, Neelam Chowdhary, executive director of global learning programs at Asia Society, shares a conversation she was part of at the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education that I think gives us all needed perspective.
During the 2012 American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) annual conference last month, I had the pleasure of participating on a panel that explored the promises and challenges of preparing teachers to be more globally minded to meet the needs of 21st century learners.
