How do we create meaningful yet affordable changes to prepare our students for future collaboration with those in China, India, etc.?
In order to move past the traditional zero-sum mentality of "us versus them," we must prepare the next generation of leaders, teachers, scientists, etc., to have meaningful conversations and collaborations with their counterparts from Asia. That includes not just language skills, but some understanding of the cultures, histories, and social values as well. What kind of tangible, affordable changes can we implement—small or large—to start preparing our students to inherit that world? Affordability and ease of implementation are critical.
