Your Voice | Penn students have a hand in Kazakhstan’s public education


A Graduate School of Education graduate is working at a secondary school in Kazakhstan




In response to an article in The Daily Pennsylvanian last week, I thought you might be interested to know that Penn’s connection with education in Kazakhstan goes even further.

One of the projects at Nazarbayev University is to establish Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools all over the country. These are top quality secondary schools where myself and four other Penn GSE graduates currently work. We were hired in 2011 and were in the first wave of international teachers brought in for this project. It is an ambitious one for sure, and we feel that these schools, along with the university, play a crucial role in Kazakhstan’s future.
