2013 Work Plan Meeting Touched Down Colorado Education Ground with a Great Success

To reinforce educational relations between Taiwan and USA, the Ministry of Education in Taiwan (MOE) signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Education with the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) in June 2012. To put this cooperation into effect, the Education Division of Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Houston (Education Division TECO in Houston) organized the 2013 Work Plan Meeting between the MOE and CDE and facilitated the conference in Denver, Colorado on November 5, 2013.

Several educational exchange programs, such as Teaching in Taiwan, Chinese, Math and Science Teachers Recruitment, and students exchange programs were put on the discussion table for the meeting’s Honorable Chair Commissioner Robert Hammond, Co-Chair Executive Director Jami M. Goetz, and Director Sophie Chou on behalf of the MOE, along with several prominent Colorado educators that were taking part in the meeting. The outcome of this meeting was a satisfactory one, producing more options for both Chinese and American teachers. Issues like salary, airfare, insurance, housing allowance, and more benefits are yet to be compensated to those who are recruited and wish to make their professional path to these exchange programs.

The MOE has been actively expanding its educational overseas linkages by bridging cooperation with inter-schools and inter-teachers between Taiwan and USA. Its endeavors can be testified by the Memorandums of Understanding with Indiana, Ohio, Iowa, Michigan, California, Arkansas, Nevada, South Carolina, Tennessee, Maine, Florida, Maryland, Utah, and Colorado, and the American Institute in Taiwan.
