In a partnership with the U.N., Columbia University's Teachers College will help set up a modern education system for the war-torn nation.

In a partnership with the U.N., Columbia University's Teachers College will help set up a modern education system for the war-torn nation. Teachers College, at the request of the government in Afghanistan, met privately in New York last week with representatives from Kabul and UNICEF to discuss the creation of a modern school system in the country and a National Academy of Education.

Ruth Vinz, a Professor of English Education and the Enid & Lester Morse Chair, compared the role Teachers College took in the '60s regarding teacher education in Afghanistan and its current involvement in international education. "Teachers College has been very much involved in international education," she said. "It may be the most important humanitarian project we can undertake."

The article, entitled "Afghan Schools to Get an Education" appeared in the March 16th edition of the The LA Times.
