EBCS Students and their international counterparts

On October 5th  World Teacher Day, visiting fellow Dr. Fred Mednick arranged for five countries to take a stand for teachers by simultaneously Skyping with educators from East Baltimore, Pakistan, China, Tajikistan, and Mexico.

Over 50 East Baltimore Community School middle school students, parents, and staff came to the SOE education building to participate in the event by asking questions to the teachers abroad and sharing their insights on how teacher strikes and bullying in the US related to the teachers’ stories abroad. Following the event, the EBCS students then took their first tour of Johns Hopkins campus.
