State Leadership in International Education.
State education agencies are concerned with strengthening the international aspects of American education to make the educational experience of future generations more relevant to the realities of present and projected populations and economic conditions in both developed and less developed areas of the world. This document discusses the necessity of education in international affairs and presents a report on the current role of State education agencies in international education. With the cooperation of each chief State school officer, information is presented for each State in some or all of the following categories: (1) Curriculum (units of study, projects described), (2) foreign languages, (3) teacher preparation and certification, (4) exchange programs, (5) Federal programs, (6) miscellaneous, and (7) names and titles of key personnel. Suggestions are made for bringing about educational change and for enlarging the international dimensions of the formal educational process. (MF)
