Exchange of Spanish Professors between Spain and the USAby Kimberly
20 years of a historic educative agreement
Since the year 2000, Spain and the US have collaborated on education. Through various agreements they have agreed to help make Spanish available in the USA and English in Spain so that it is more accessible to the general population. The professor interchange program created by both governments has proved to be very beneficial. A new agreement recently signed will extend the agreement another 10 years. This renewal of the contract first signed in 2000, signifies the consolidation of cooperation between Spain and the USA in educational matters.
New Plan for Cooperation
On September 22, the Secretary of State for Education and Training, Mario Beder, and U.S. Deputy Secretary of Education, Anthony Miller, signed a new Plan for Cooperation in education in Washington D.C. to develop activities that support a better knowledge of Spanish in the US and English in Spain. Next, the Secretary of State for Education and Training went to New York where he signed the Memorandum of Understanding with the authorities of the state to promote the objectives set forth in the Plan for Cooperation. These actions are a step forward towards a possible dual high school diploma.
The Spanish Government collaborates with 72 bilingual education centers and 12 universities in the US.
Currently, there are about 900 Spanish teachers working in the USA while the number of American conversation assistants in Spain is about 2.700.
