Ukrainian educators visit two MPS schools

Ukrainian educators visit Kagel Two MPS schools hosted educators from Ukraine in October as part of a program to exchange thoughts and ideas about education. On October 18, Washington High School of Information Technology received six Ukrainian visitors to observe a Milwaukee high school in action. On October 20, the group spent the day at Albert E. Kagel School to observe bilingual education in a south side neighborhood.

Ukrainian educators visit KagelThe exchange was made possible through the Open World program, an international exchange supported by the U.S. Congress. MPS student ambassadors, teachers and principals embraced the opportunities for leadership, fellowship and demonstration of culinary arts and bilingual programs. The interaction proved valuable for breaking down stereotypes, enhancing cultural understanding and forging relationships.

Cultural exchanges align with MPS’ Eight Big Ideas to promote student achievement. Open dialogues are beneficial for exploring ideas and sharing successes that ultimately lead to student success.
