Just want to give a quick shoutout to the wonderful international colleagues today who spoke of their experiences with education in home countries!  I appreciated hearing the stories and learning about some of the key similarities and differences… I just found it fascinating! Thanks!

I would love to hear any of your opinions (domestic or international) about some of these videos about education here in the US… what does it make you think?
