Chinese Researchers Visit Teachers21
Teachers21 recently had the honor of hosting five Chinese researchers who had reached out to us to gain a deeper understanding of the educational landscape in Massachusetts and across the country. They are currently travelling and studying educational practices here in the US, in Canada and in Finland as part of an effort to reform some education practices in China. With Teachers21, they spent half the day at Westwood High School touring the school, observing classes, and in roundtable discussions with several key members of the school staff. The group then traveled to Greater Lawrence Regional Tech to observe a professional development workshop and learn about the school's efforts in successfully moving from Level 3 to Level 1 status. They spent the following half day at Teachers21 for a workshop followed by a roundtable discussion with our staff. We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to learn from their perspective and to represent Massachusetts on the world stage as a leader in education.
