Global Education Summit 2012
Global Education Summit—on Friday, February 24, 2012, at Monona Terrace
in Madison—aims to bring together advocates from the business and
education communities, as well as others, to explore concrete ways to
collectively advance and promote international education in Wisconsin
schools and communities.
The Wisconsin International Trade Council (1998) and the State
Superintendent’s Statewide International Education Council, among
others, examined and developed statewide recommendations to strengthen
and expand global education in schools. This summit aims to move toward
putting those recommendations into action, seeking clear commitments
from all participating groups of stakeholders.
Between the opening general session and the closing plenary session,
this daylong session has three distinct components: 1) Highlighting
successful global education programs in Wisconsin’s schools
(www.ecb.org/global); 2) discussing the fiscal, policy, and cultural
environments for educating globally competent students; and 3),
articulating clear and real community commitment to global and world
education programs in Wisconsin’s schools.
