Thurman Speaks About International Studies in the 21st Century

The Maricopa Community Colleges have gotten lots of negative press thanks to the international travels that have taken place.

   Subject: International Schools

   International travels have gotten the Maricopa County
   Community College District (MCCCD) into trouble.  The 
   MCCCD international efforts are necessary because all
   21st century educational institutions must participate 
   globally in addition to locally.

   Today (Thursday, 25 January), the Arizona Republic
   reported that Horne wants the legislature to "fund
   international schools."  Horne wants students from
   these schools to be "well-traveled" and "knowledgeable 
   about world cultures." 

   It appears as though the MCCCD is working on becoming an 
   environment that would allow these K-12 "international 
   school" graduates to continue their learning.  Do we
   have an oxymoron?  Community college internationalization 
   bad; K-12 internationalization good.
