In April 2011, the China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE), the international arm of the Chinese National Ministry of Education and one of CSUN’s education partners in China, sent a group of 23 Chinese school principals and education bureau chiefs to CSUN for training workshops on American school reform. The China Institute and the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies (ELPS) were hosts to these distinguished visitors. In addition to attending workshops on topics including the American school system, California schools, teacher evaluation, school finance, and school organization and reform, the delegation members enjoyed visits to Vaughn Learning Center, Holms Middle School, Birmingham High School, and Pierce College.
Associate Vice President Mack Johnson, ELPS Chair William De La Torre, Dr. Justine Su, CSUN faculty, and local school hosts celebrate with the Chinese delegation members on the successful completion of the workshops at CSUN
