I came across more than one article on my RSS feed this week about the study reported in Inside Higher Education that students who studied abroad do better in school upon their return. Most of the articles I read seemed to take the stance that merely suggesting that studying abroad was useful to education was lunacy. As someone who has always wanted to explore education systems outside of U.S. borders ( I wanted to go to boarding school in England and be just like Hermione Granger), I find it shocking that so many people think so poorly of the abroad experience.
Here’s the url of one of the better articles I read: http://www.good.is/post/studying-abroad-makes-you-a-better-student/
