Their assignment this year Change is in the air will continue the theme used in October for the Saudi Arabian teachers' political, and educational changes, and it will be interesting for all to learn what is happening in Morocco, Malaysia, Mexico, Uganda, Tanzania and Senegal as well as Bangladesh and The Philippines.
