“I am pleased with the English school with which we are paired because we have similar challenges such as how to engage boys to increase their achievement and building leadership capacity from within,” said Jami Dunham, head of school at Paul Public Charter School. “Our 9th Grade Academy curriculum includes a global awareness component, so this collaboration fits perfectly in the work we are doing to create global citizens,” Dunham said.
“This project allows schools to create globally conscious citizens who are cognizant of the issues that impact their communities and society as a whole,” said Josephine Baker, executive director of the D.C. Public Charter School Board. “It gives teachers an opportunity to embrace various perspectives and practices in public education outside of the U.S. that speak to familiar issues.”
