July 28th, 2008 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.-The 2008 Pakistani Educational Leadership Institute (PELI) class has wrapped up its month-long session at Plymouth State University.

For the fifth consecutive year, thanks to funding from the United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, Plymouth State University hosted and engaged Pakistani educators and administrators by developing and honing the leadership skills necessary to direct educational initiatives and affect change in Pakistan.

The group culminated their stay with a graduation ceremony July 24.

Three New Hampshire teachers also participated in the Institute for graduate credit and collaboration in the cross-cultural educational exchange.

Since 2004, PSU has trained 80 educators from Pakistan in four summer institutes. According to statistics compiled by Lahore-based Pakistani partner Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi, alumni of the program acting as master trainers in Pakistan have trained more than 10,000 educators. The Department of State’s Education and Cultural Affairs Bureau (ECA) works closely with Plymouth State University and the Pakistani partner organization, Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi, to ensure that the program curriculum reflects U.S.-Pakistan education cooperation goals.
