The World Views and American Views Series

Our World Views series features interviews with individuals who have been educated primarily abroad — a complement to our American Views series.  Most participants in the World Views series have now moved to the U.S., and share with us their reflections on the widely varying experiences and schools they have encountered.

Each unique educational biography is meant to provide a prism through which we can gain insight into the many meanings of education and how it shapes us as individuals.  These conversations are not meant to be sources of authoritative information on educational systems or statistics.

We invite you to respond to the interviews you hear by writing to us at bcthinktank@gmail.com.  If you or someone you know would be a good interviewee for either the American or World Views series, please contact us.
