State Education Agency Involvement in International Education. An Issue Analysis Paper.
Hansen, Kenneth H.
State education agencies (SEA's) must determine the policies most appropriate for the realization at the state level of the high priority placed on international education by the new U.S. Department of Education. The extent of international education (whether involving the study of different cultures, of foreign languages, of nations and international relations, or of some combination of these) must first be defined. SEA's can then establish statewide goals and provide consultative help and technical assistance to local education agencies as they make their decisions regarding the placement of international education in the curriculum or in district policy. Despite the priority placed on international education, however, available financial support remains limited. Some sources of further information on state-level programs in international education conclude this document. (Author/PGD)
