Advancing ED’s International Strategy

Developed through an extensive process of consultation, the Department has established its first-ever fully articulated international strategy for 2012-2016. The strategy is designed to simultaneously advance two strategic goals: strengthening U.S. education and advancing our nation’s international priorities. The strategy reflects the value and necessity of:

  • A world-class education for all students;
  • Global competencies for all students;
  • International benchmarking and applying lessons learned from other countries; and
  • Education diplomacy and engagement with other countries.
