Show Notes

“Global Citizenship,” “Cultural Competence,” “Global Perspective,” and “Global Awareness” are all terms that parents and students may hear around the topic of global learning. But the terms themselves don’t describe what is at the heart of this learning, and what this work looks like at each of Parker’s three school divisions. In this episode of Parker Podcast, hear from Head of School Kevin Yaley, Head of Lower School Dr. Bob Gillingham, Head of Middle School Dan Lang, and Head of Upper School Dr. Monica Gillespie, to learn more about what this programming means for our students.
