Q. You hear a lot about the high test scores that kids who are in International Baccalaureate schools can get. But what’s the downside of this relatively new curriculum?
The International Baccalaureate (IB) program was created in 1968 to provide a quality education for the children of European diplomats who weren’t living in their home countries. IB is aligned with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to produce an internationally standardized educational system that affords equal weight and value to every system of government, cultural practice and social construct in the world.
