International Education--What's in a Name?
Parker, Walter C.
Phi Delta Kappan, v90 n3 p196-202 Nov 2008
Public and private schools in the U.S. increasingly are adopting international education. The author asks, "What is it?" and finds a jumble of meanings and programs. Contradictory forces, such as nationalism and cosmopolitanism, are at play. Thus international education can have very different meanings at different schools.
