Teachers from India Tour PUHSD Schools

Posted by Community Relations Department at 11/27/2013

Over 40 teachers from India toured four Phoenix Union campuses--Central, Metro Tech, Alhambra and Franklin Police and Fire, November 19.  The teachers are taking part in a three-month training program at ASU called In-STEP (India Support for Teacher Education Program) in which educators can enhance the teacher training in India by implementing reform strategies.  As part of the program, the Indian educators observe U.S. schools and educational best practices.  According to some of the teachers, the teacher-student communication is limited in India, perhaps because of the large classroom sizes (60-200) and there is limited student engagement in the learning.
