Education Reform in the United States

November 14, 2018

Six educators, school administrators, and university-based researchers from China, will be traveling to Cleveland to learn how local government and school districts work creatively to address challenges in today’s education system. The program will highlight the role of public school boards and universities in addressing education reform, including sexual harassment, nepotism, academic dishonesty, and integration of a diverse student body. School visits and meetings will feature Cleveland State University, the Cleveland Transformation Alliance, Cleveland Metropolitan School District, the Cleveland Teachers Union, among others.

International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program

Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.

By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohioโ€™s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at kferman@ccwa.ccwa.org or clickย here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, clickย here.
