Students, Teachers, and Business Leaders Make the Case for Global Education

10 September 2010

On May 25, a group of dedicated global education supporters including, Marika Beaton, a member of Global Education Massachusetts; Jon Blachly, from EF Education; Deanne Moore, a Hingham High School teacher; and Liv Benger and Tommy Stack, two Hingham High students; presented to members of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The group spoke of the critical need for increased global education in Massachusetts classrooms, and also shared their own personal experiences of gaining global perspectives.

Benger and Stack expressed to the audience their love of learning world literature and history in high school and both conveyed desires to explore international studies in future college careers. The presentation was well received by both the Board, and Mitchell Chester, the MA Commissioner of Education, responded with a comment on the need for a stronger focus on global education in our schools.
