High-school students in Wisconsin can earn a Global Education Achievement Certificate as early as this year after completing certain courses, extracurricular activities and community service with an international focus. Districts in the state may adopt the Global Scholars program and review their courses, including history, geography and literature, to create criteria that align with the state's model. "It gives some incentives for students to work towards the certificate and really learn more about the world," said Gilles Bousquet, chairman of the International Education Council.
