From Anthony Jackson, vice president for education at Asia Society:

 

"Finally, Zhao encouraged U.S. educators to learn from other countries, but not at the expense of destroying what already works in the American system. He argued that our broad and well-rounded curriculum combined with teacher autonomy and the celebration of diversity provides a framework for our students that encourages entrepreneurialism—something that the rest of the world admires."

Lorraine suggested Friday 16th our time, or Thurs night 15h March, their time. Yikes! That was only two days away and we had nothing organised. ...

A Relief Teacher's Journey - “It is time to be the voice of change” – #flatclass Book Club Reflections (Part 1) | Connect All Schools | Scoop.it

I never expected to lead the creation of a global learning community. I was ‘just’ a second year relief (substitute) teacher, who has never had a class of his own.
