Wisconsin students offered new global studies certificate : Wsj | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

 "High school students in Wisconsin will be eligible as early as this year to earn a new global studies certificate, the state Department of Public Instruction announced Wednesday.

The Global Scholars program can be voluntarily adopted by school districts across the state and will allow high schools to award the Global Education Achievement Certificate.

The certificate — which the state says is the first of its kind in the country — will be awarded to students who demonstrate their global competency through coursework and extracurricular activities, according to Gerhard Fischer, international and world languages education consultant for the DPI."
