The Partners in Education Program (PiE) brought groups of seven teachers and administrators from selected regions of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan to school districts and universities in the United States. Participants were assigned a host school and faculty mentor to learn about citizenship education in the U.S. and to observe and contribute to academic life at the host institutions. Upon their return to their home countries, participants provided a one to two-week training conference in civics curriculum development and evaluation.
The program also included a reciprocal exchange that brought U.S. teachers to the schools of the participating Eurasian teachers for approximately two weeks.
