The name of the website outside of the United States that I chose to review is Association for Childhood Education International.  The link is  and the online resource is The organization’s  mission is to promote and support the optimal education and development of children worldwide, and to influence the professional growth of educators and the efforts of others who are committed to the needs of children in a changing society .  I chose  this  website because it  focuses on all children  and their education well-being. I believe that all children should have the right to a fair and quality education.
The current issue that caught my attention  was the article on Supporting Quality Education: Public-Private Partnerships . The article main focus was how Latin based corporate companies donate their monies to education to provide for high quality education.  Whereas, American based companies provide money that is put into the general education sectors.  Basically the American companies do not fully thrive for high quality education, only basic education.  The Latin based corporate companies also make long term investments toward high quality education.
While reviewing the resources, I noticed that demographics and diversity all correlate with effective and quality education.  Organizations that are private or public should support quality education.  They should make an effort to support these education goals for a long term commitment.  I believe that companies should make it their obligations to donate money into the educational system, because all children deserve the right to have an education.  I believe that if more companies would support a child, then the child will have a positive educational outcome.


  1. Hi Tamieka, thanks for sharing the Association for Childhood Education International. As professionals, we need to know what’s going on in our field outside of the U.S... The information shared can maybe help in our early childhood setting.


  2. Tamieka,
    That sounds like a good idea for companies to invest in the educational system, but I don't think many would comply unless they receive some type of incentive.I sounds like Latino don't mind investing the their future, and in the future of the children. Nice post.
