Georgia DOE signs memorandum of understanding with Seoul National University of Education

Representatives from the Georgia Department of Education signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) last week with Seoul National University of Education (SNUE) in Seoul, Korea.


Through the MOU, the department and SNUE agreed to work collaboratively to promote opportunities for teacher exchange programs, provide special academic programs, and facilitate training opportunities in Georgia for SNUE students. This is the third MOU that Georgia has signed with Korea to promote exchange programs.


“In order to be competitive in today’s global economy, our students need to truly be global citizens,” State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge said. “This relationship is a mutually beneficial opportunity to provide Georgia’s teachers with the type of educational training that will help broaden their horizons and help them give real examples to their students about the competitive world in which we live.” 


Located in the Seocho-gu district of Seoul, the capital of South Korea, Seoul National University of Education specializes in providing training for future public elementary school teachers. Founded in May 1946 under the name of Kyunggi Public Regular School, it was the first Korean national university to specialize in elementary teacher training.​
