Global Competencies

0 Points

Working with the Asia Society, we coach and provide technical assistance to a number of schools in the International Studies Schools Network (ISSN) and the Partnership for Global Learning (PGL). The goal of this work is to better prepare students for a globally interdependent work force and global citizenship.

“Schools cannot be made great by great teacher performances. They will only be made great by great student performance.” (Phillip C. Schlechty 2002)

“To gauge the competitiveness of students, international benchmarking of student performance as well as teacher practices has increased dramatically over the last half-century.” (Badi, Jin, &  Skemer, 2006)

A number of organizations and policy advocates are helping schools and districts re-think their expectations for student outcomes and the curriculum teachers deliver.

We connect schools to other educator and policy advocates, provide technical assistance, provide coaching, and conduct a needs-assessment of existing practices.

“The success of standards-based reform and NCLB remains a matter of debate, but the goal of  students being globally competitive is increasing infused into the literature and public debate  around school improvement and school reform” ( Jones, Jones, & Hargrove, 2003; Kohn, 2004;  Wager, 2008; Zhao, 2007)
