2019 Global Youth Trends Forum - American Youths in Taiwan! Youths from 26 Countries Talk about the Future



With global youths from 26 countries across five continents gathering together, the 2019 Global Youth Trends Forum was held in Taiwan from November 5 to 11. This international event has been held for seven consecutive years so far. This year, the numbers of participating countries and young people both hit a new high. Several hundreds of young people from Australia, Bhutan, Brunei, Canada, Germany, Guatemala, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Kenya, South Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, New Zealand, Paraguay, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, Slovakia, Sweden, Thailand, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Vietnam came to participate in the event. Among them, the United States delegation formed by six youths from world Youth Alliance—Julia Kenney, Ethan Mack, Margaret Snyder, Gabrielle Castello, Ashton Weber, Walker Ray Dornish, all expressed full satisfaction for this exchange visit to Taiwan and they would return to the United States with fruitful results.

This year’s forum focused on three topics: Educational Creativity, Regional Revitalization, and Smart Living. The United States delegation was led to visit Tainan, Changhua, Hsinchu, Taoyuan and other places. The first spot was a case of Regional Revitalization—Togo Rural Village Art Museum, a non-traditional museum that wowed the American youths in the very beginning. Then, they visited some other brilliant spots, including Chimei Museum, which was on Parenting Magazine’s Thinking BIG of Learning Top 100 list in 2018, Youth Travel Spot in Fangyuan Township of Changhua County to experience the oyster culture and the unique oyster shell art, Natural Way Experimental Educational Elementary School that combines oriental humanities and ecology, and Sha Yang Ye Robot Wonderland (Pavilion of Future), the representative of Smart Living, to DIY a robot with simple mechanical transmission devices. Through the rich and diversified activity arrangement, these American young people obtained a further understanding of the local ecology, cultural heritage, scientific and technological innovation of Taiwan, and they also sparked ideas and gained cross-border friendships during the visit.

The highlight of the 2019 Global Youth Trends Forum was the forum conference on November 9 to 10. Vice President Chen Chien-jen made the opening ceremony speech, encouraging the young people present to give full play to their creativity and exert their influence with the original intention of “what we can contribute to society.” Audrey Tang, Minister without Portfolio of Executive Yuan, who was selected as one of the Top 100 Global Thinkers in 2019 by American Foreign Policy Magazine, was invited to serve as the panel host. In the panel discussion, Ms. Tang and three other guests, Chebet Lesan, founder of Kenyan smart-energy company Brightgreen Renewable Energy in, Toshiki Abe, founder, and CEO of Japanese social enterprise Ridilover, and Justin Yu, co-founder of Taiwanese consulting company Plan b, shared their rich practical experiences, serving as successful models for the global youths present on how to integrate the forum’s three topics to practice the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of SDGs.

For the group discussion, the United States delegation focused on the topic of Smart Living. They used case studies to explore the current problems faced by the country from different perspectives, and proposed an action plan. The US Delegation asked a centered question, “how can technology improve quality of life by improving the access quality healthcare?”They combined technology and the idea of health education, encouraged the idea of volunteering in community engagement, and promoted the telecommunication solution, including telemedicine.

After two days of brainstorming, these young people from all over the world had contributed to the sparks of wisdom and creative exchanges. At the end of the forum, the Cultural Night was held to enhance the friendship between these global youths. The US Delegation made every effort to present outstanding American Idol and dance performance, bringing a World Expo vibe to the audience. With their joyful music and brisk steps, all the distinguished guests and participating young people could not resist but to feel excited and tap along.

In today’s globalization trend, global youths have interacted more frequently in public participation and international exchange. This year’s forum is not the end but the beginning. International issues depend on young people’s long-term attention. They can only be improved and solved by global youths through continuous thinking, communication, and implementation with a common intention of bringing a positive change to the world. The Ministry of Education of Taiwan government also will continue to actively promote the cross-border exchange of young people. Through diversified channels such as overseas volunteer services, international experiential learning, international conferences, and exchange and study, Taiwanese youth are provided with more opportunities to participate in the international community, sow seeds of international friendship, cultivate an international vision, and strengthen the knowledge and action in international affairs.

Feel like to jointly build an ideal blueprint for our generations with young people from all over the world?

各國青年們在經歷了會議兩日的腦力激盪,所迸發出的智慧火花和創意交流都相當令人驚喜,為了讓國際青年增進彼此情誼,在活動的尾聲「文化之夜」,美國代表團青年更使出渾身解數,帶來精彩萬分的American Idol模仿秀兼舞蹈演出,讓人宛如置身在臺版世界博覽會,歡騰的樂聲與輕快的腳步,讓全場為之沸騰,在座的所有貴賓、青年無不跟著起舞。

堪薩斯城學區竄改數據以獲得密蘇里州最高評等鑑定


學生出席率為密蘇里州衡量學區補助金額的標準之一。據本(108)1120日公布之調查報告顯示,堪薩斯市學區(Kansas City School District)102年至105年連續3年竄改學生出席率,以獲取密蘇里州最高評等鑑定及高額補助金。K學區理事派蒂曼什(Pattie Mansur)表示數年來K學區學生出席率皆未能達到標準,但竄改的出席率為緩慢增加致不易察覺。
此事件發生在K學區前任總監史提夫葛林(Steve Green)及代理總監艾爾突尼斯(Al Tunis)任內,G前總監與T代理總監皆表示不知情。G前總監於104年離開K學區後赴迪卡爾布縣學區(Dekalb County School District)任職,據亞特蘭大立憲報報導指出喬治亞州教育廳正在審理的教師不倫案中,G總監因隱匿不報於本(11)月中已遭D學區解雇。
K學區前職員係於本年1月向密蘇里州小學教育廳舉報此案。經K學區展開內部調查及個別交叉訊問,發現共7名職員涉案,其中3名已離開現職,另4名留職停薪。密蘇里州教育廳於聲明中表示待正確的出席率統計完成後,K學區需繳回溢領的補助金額。
學生出席率、畢業率、就業率及課業成績表現等為教育廳評鑑學區之指標,需連續2年達標才能通過最高評等鑑定。出席率部分要求學區每學年90%上課日需達到90%出席率,若達到80%可獲得部分評分。現任總監馬克貝戴爾(Mark Bedell)表示竄改出席率使K學區於105年達到80%的出席率門檻,也暫時獲得最高評分鑑定。但自1057B總監接任後,出席率從未超過80%K學區也無法連續2年達標。B總監表示已採取必要措施如加強職員訓練及學生資料系統控管,以確保類似情形不再發生。
107K學區歡慶獲得82.9%評分,於總分120分獲得歷史新高的99.5分,但仍因出席率未達80%而沒有通過最高評等鑑定。堪薩斯市面臨大量貧困學生因家庭因素於學期中頻繁搬遷,K學區亦為全美國學生流動比率最高的學區,致使達到90/90出席率標準對B總監而言為巨大的挑戰。
