The purpose of the consortium is to foster a permanent place for the teaching and study of Asia in middle and secondary school courses devoted to world history, world cultures, or world geography. Our goal is to have 80% of American middle and high schools teaching serious content in Asian history, geography, and literature within 10 years time. Additionally, to provide teachers with enriched background on Chinese, Japanese and Korean classical traditions, modern history and contemporary issues. The East Asia Seminar, in conjunction with Columbia University is part of a national program to improve education about Asia.
