“I want to know more about education policy on a global scale. I would be interested in exploring how other countries approach their education hurdles and how we as a global education community could pool best practices to address our respective obstacles.”
George-Mathias joins Digital Promise from the New York City School District where he was both a teacher and an administrator for eight years.
