So how exactly does the education system in America work? How do students learn? Is it different than other countries? Students, teachers, parents, administrators, psychologists and many other members of society all have opinions on the education system, its successes and failures, its strengths and its faults.   

Ideal for international students, this program teaches you how the American education system works through firsthand experience with public school students, educational research and best practices so you can bring that specialized knowledge back to your home country.

Also, international students who graduate from this program are eligible to take the Ohio Assessment for Educators to pursue their Ohio Teacher Licensure.
