A collaborative event "EDUCATORS' BRIDGE ACROSS THE PACIFIC” with JCCI NY (Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry New York) and JAC-US was held on 22 April. Twenty-two educators from Japan and the U.S. (administrators, managers, and elementary, middle, and high school teachers) gathered online to discuss trends in education in Japan and the U.S., as well as issues facing each country, in small groups.
It was an event that broadened our thinking considerably and was the first step toward our goal of "each alumni becoming a bridge between Japan and the U.S.".
We will hold another face-to-face event with Prof. Yoshiko Ikeda of Kansai University on June 17 at Grand Front Osaka. We will make an official announcement soon, so please keep an eye out for this event as well!
