Wallingford Superintendent of Schools Speaks Out On Cultural Competency

Wallingford Superintendent of Schools Salvatore Menzo is currently on vacation, but late last month, he was a guest on the WNPR radio program, "Where We Live."

Menzo (shown at left in a photo from the "Where We Live" web site) was a panelist on a show discussing the teaching of cultural competency in Connecticut's schools. The term cultural competency is generally defined as an understanding of what is going on in other cultures around the world.

Joining Menzo on the panel were:

- William Howe, the Connecticut Department of Education's program manager for culturally responsive education.

- Eve Pech, director of programs for the Connecticut World Affairs Council.

- Jess Rimington, Executive Director and Founder of the One World Youth Project.

This episode of  "Where We Live" is about 50 minutes long. Menzo's joins the discussion with host John Dankosky at about the 10 minute mark.
