A group of Durham Public Schools teachers has traveled to Antigua, Guatemala, for a language and cultural immersion program.
You might recall that DPS Superintendent Carl Harris was among the group that traveled to Guatemala last year, under the same program, which takes educators to rural and urban schools in the Central American country.
Among other goals, the experience aims to help bridge cultural gaps between educators and Latino students.
Stein and the group of teachers who went this year have promised to share their experiences when they return July 25. We plan to share more about their trip in the Aug. 2 edition of The Durham News.
