Scholars from Ecuador are wrapping up a seven month stay at Northern Illinois University.
The 37 teachers came to the United States to study English.
Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa is pushing the importance of higher standards for education. He is investing in teachers to build a better education system in his country. And that means sending teachers to the U.S.
“You have the best high education system in the world. So we have to learn a lot for the state in this subject.”
