What Will Characterize International Education in US Public Schools?
Journal of Research in International Education, v8 n1 p99-109 2009
This article develops a working model for international education in US public schools with consideration of the curricula and accreditation standards utilized by the broad group of overseas institutions known as "international schools". It addresses the public international school identity question in a decade in which public schools in many states and countries are taking an increasing interest in international education and in nurturing globally-minded students; the article also proposes a web-based forum in which such a model can be further refined.
