The U.S. Department of Education has established its first-ever, fully articulated international strategy. The strategy is designed to strengthen U.S. education and advance the international priorities of the U.S. 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.
The strategy was developed through extensive consultation within the Department of Education and with other U.S. government agencies and non-governmental organizations.
