Video recording of the "Educating Global Citizens: A Conversation with Ministers of Education" panel.


This episode is a syndicated replay from Season 6 of LEAD Summit 2015. The theme that year was “Global Latino Education and Advocacy Days”. The purpose of the Global LEAD Summit, which took place in Texas on the campus of UT-San Antonio, was to bring much needed attention and discussion to critical issues in Latino education - worldwide, and focused in engaging dialogue to help create bridges between Education in Latin American and the United States.

This panel is entitled "Educating Global Citizens: A Conversation with Ministers of Education", as we had the privilege of hosting Representatives from several ministries of education, there in order to provide opportunities for exchange of information, communication, and collaboration, and build international partnerships by making formal connections with leaders, scholars, teachers, and students.

Thanks to the underwriting support of UTSA.
