Brown University's Shenzhen Education Bureau Teachers Training Program selected Sturgis Charter Public School as one of twelve host sites in New England for the delegation to visit. The Chinese teachers are exploring new and innovative teaching methods being developed in U.S. K-12 schools.
The Brown-Shenzhen Summer Institute is one of Brown’s first programs to partner internationally with a K-12 urban school district, according to Kenneth Wong, the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Professor in Education Policy and UEP director.
A range of public, private and charter schools were selected as host sites, including Hopkinton and Boston Latin. Sturgis was the only school selected on Cape Cod.
