Título: Toward International Cooperation in Education for the Integration of the Americas

Other Instances of Collaboration

Collaboration also takes place at the level of national government agencies. For example, the ministers of education of the Americas meet as often as three times per year to discuss common problems and solutions. In recent years these meetings have ended with agreements to share their experiences and to engage in joint actions.  Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay have made, as part of MERCOSUR, agreements affecting curriculum and degree equivalency in their educational institutions (McGinn, 1993). Librarians in Mexico and the United States have been cooperating on literacy programs and expansion of their collections (Hoffert, 1993).

Finally, collaboration also is stimulated by international agencies that encourage joint research projects. For example, the Inter-American Development Bank is sponsoring a multi-country research project on teacher training. UNESCO through its office in Santiago has organized collaboration among 13 countries to develop achievement tests to assess knowledge of language and mathematics in primary schools.
