How Americans are Creating a Great Education - in Russia!

"Charles Heberle (former Colonel in US army and a NATO man), developed a full-fledged curriculum to for American public schools, K-12.  His program,  "You the People," is based on America's Founding Fathers' philosophy, the Declaration of Independence, and the American Constitution. 

In 2001 Charles Heberle received an email from Russia which said, "We have studied your American website and want to know if your program, "You The People," could be adapted to Russia's reality? "

What has ensued is a model American program for eduction being implemented in Petrozavodsk, Russia!

The Petrozavodsk teachers are teaching and refining the program on a volunteer basis after losing their minimal funding. When asked why they do what they do, they answered, "because the program and the children give us hope," and "because it makes teaching more exciting."

It's a positive, patriotic and inspiring program that deserves more attention in the USA.

Nice story. I have thought for a while that this "no child left behind" program that really is teach how to take tests so teachers can keep their jobs programs is basically a foolish idea.

Turning out great citizens who are empowered to live productive lives in America or Russia sounds so much better.
