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.
