It's An International Celebration

November 12th-16th is International Education and Exchange Week (IEW). During this week the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education created a joint initiative to promote international awareness. Their goal is to prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, an exchange experiences in the United States. President George Bush once stated “When students get to know each other, they learn the universality of many values. That’s going to be important for peace in the world.”

The truth is that from lack of knowledge many people do perish and this week is dedicated to opening the eyes and minds of many. When we come together as a whole and move forward towards the greater good we will finally become the change that we want to see.

International Education Week will be held November 12th-16th of 2007 and November 17th -21st of 2008. It is never too early or too late to get involved.
