US teachers visit Nepal


Ten US public school teachers from Michigan and faculty members from Michigan State University have been in Nepal for three weeks on a Fulbright-Hays 'Group Projects Abroad' study tour. The group is studying Nepal's rivers, environment and culture, giving the teachers first-hand experience of real-life conditions in the developing world. The group visited partner schools in Pokhara and took part in water quality testing activities, and learned about Nepal's school system, especially environmental education. "It was a real privilege to live with host families and participate in their traditional religious festival," said Barbara Deslich, a teacher at Everett High School in Lansing, Michigan. Dan Pagel of Anchor Bay Middle School said, "I'll remember most the warmth and openness of the Gurung host families and the opportunity to participate in the bhailo."
