Kazakhstan Educators learn about UW System

Some local schools are getting a visit from overseas educators.

As part of the Open World Leadership campaign, UW Marathon County hosted several educators from Kazakhstan Monday. The educators learned about the UW system and said one of the largest differences between our educations is the ability to create curriculum.

"In Kazakhstan we have a very centralized educational system," Yernat Zhunussov said during his visit. "the curriculum is developed on the ministry level and that's the curriculum used in all the educational institutions all over the country. Here, the system is very different because every university can develop their own curriculum."

The group, staying with host families, will also visit Wausau schools to learn how all levels of education differ here in the United States.
