26 School Principals From Ghana Touring Conn.

WILLIMANTIC, Conn. (AP) — Twenty-six principals from the west African nation of Ghana are visiting Connecticut this week for meetings with local education officials.

The visit was organized by Bonsu Osei, a professor of mathematics and computer science at Eastern Connecticut State University. He says it will give both sides an opportunity to talk over educational leadership and global issues of education.

Glenn A. Cassis, executive director of Connecticut’s African-American Affairs Commission, says the visit will showcase Connecticut’s model educational programs.

The principals are expected to visit, beginning this past Sunday until Sept. 8. They have meetings scheduled with Connecticut school principals as well as representatives from ECSU, the University of Connecticut, Yale and Fairfield University.
