Chinese Delegation Visits El Monte –
Rosemead Adult School
Over 30 vocational and educational professionals and business managers from several Chinese cities and provinces paid a visit recently to the El Monte-Rosemead Adult School.
“They were given a tour of the facility and were able to observe several of the adult school classes including ESL, high school diploma, career and technical education and parent education,” said principal Robin Torres.
The visit was arranged by the Chinese Ministry of Education to educate the members by observing and discussing the two different educational systems and then share that information with their colleagues in China. Some of the topics discussed during the delegation’s visit included funding sources, staffing, curriculum, enrollment numbers, school demographics, fees, certificates of completion, employment and college opportunities for students and the impact of the adult school on the community.
According to Torres, the delegation left the El Monte-Rosemead Adult School quite impressed with the students, staff, and facility.
“We enjoyed their visit to our campus very much and were very happy to host them,” said Torres.
