Our 16 International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP) scholars will be presenting Cultural Dialogues during the month of February.  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.  The issues with immigration and migration, changing attitudes about multiculturalism (negative and positive), political conservation and nationalism, and the role of fake news in democracies will be considered as part of these noon time presentations.
