Educational Exchange

A local US news Web site ran a story yesterday on an English teacher who participated in a program in Japan last autumn. The Fulbright Memorial Fund Teacher Program, funded by the Japanese government, brought 200 American teachers on a three-week educational exchange. It gave them a chance to learn about the education system and culture of Japan. In Tokyo, they visited a sumo "beya" and the Tsukiji fish market. They also had a chance to actually teach at local schools, in the writer's case at a junior high school in Okayama Prefecture.
