North Carolina is a Leader in Global Education
In 2011, the North Carolina State Board of Education formed a Task Force on Global Education to assess the state’s effort to produce “globally competitive” graduates ready to live, work, and contribute in an interconnected world. Thanks to their work, the state signed a series of global commitments to ensure every public school student graduates fully prepared for the world, and has taken action to provide statewide infrastructure that supports and guides educators in a common vision for global education for North Carolina’s public schools. Today we’ll hear about how North Carolina continues to work toward these big goals and how one method, dual language programs, is taking shape across our state and preparing our children to work and compete in a global workplace.
