Get Moving and Get Global

So grateful to our First Lady Michelle Obama for the strong support of global education during her visit to China. Here's what she said at Peking University:  

"Studying abroad isn’t just a fun way to spend a semester; it is quickly becoming the key to success in our global economy. Because getting ahead in today’s workplaces isn’t just about getting good grades or test scores in school, which are important. It’s also about having real experience with the world beyond your borders -- experience with languages, cultures and societies very different from your own." 
You can watch the video of the First Lady's talk here. And let me ask you--when will "global education" finally be just "education"?
