An international education expert, Henri (“Henk”) Ankoné, will meet with Philippine educators and school administrators in a CFA-sponsored workshop, “The Challenges of K-12.” The workshop is scheduled on October 14, 2015 in CFA’s Lagerwey Hall in Sta. Mesa, Manila. Organizers say the workshop is meant to address educators’ concerns about K-12, including:
- “How do I make K-12 succeed in my school?”
- “Are there K-12 success stories in other countries, and how do I apply them in my school or locality?”
- “How do I overcome resistance to K-12?”
