International Initiatives


Teachers College entered into partnership with Bhutan, a country undergoing widespread educational reform. Building on a relationship established between TC faculty member, Francisco Rivera-Batiz and his  former Bhutanese student, Gyaltshen Penjor (SIPA, 2000), who headed the country's Royal Council of Education, Teachers College agreed to serve in an advisory capacity to the government as it seeks to formulate a national curriculum. TC will also work with Bhutan as it seeks to improve teacher education and assessment. For the full article, please click here.
