World View’s South Africa study trip was “an experience that will forever be one of the best times of my life,” according to Andi Webb, a teacher and mathematics coach in Fayetteville, NC.

The study visit group left Raleigh on Friday, June 16, 2017, headed halfway across the globe to Durban, South Africa. Once there, their itinerary included historical tours, school visits and lectures by South African educators and a visit to Ohlange High School, the site where Nelson Mandela cast his first vote. The group then traveled to Cape Town, Johannesburg and Rustenburg. “Walking in Mahatma Gandhi’s footsteps, visiting many places of historic significance through the work of Nelson Mandela, seeing several of the ‘Big Five’ and conversing with numerous South African educators helped me reflect on our own education and culture in America,” Andi says, and “working with educators around the world can enlighten us, challenge us and help us all improve education for children.”
