Spain and U.S. sign new agreement to strengthen cooperation in education

​The Minister for Education and Vocational Training, Pilar Alegría, and the U.S. Ambassador to Spain, Julissa Reynoso, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the U.S. Department of Education that strengthens educational collaboration between the two countries.

September 21, 2022

The Memorandum of Understanding, previously signed in Washington by U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona and Ambassador of Spain to the U.S. Santiago Cabanas, provides, among other things, for the strengthening of student and teacher mobility and exchange programs, as well as the promotion of bilingual and multicultural education in both education systems.

Currently, over 1,000 Spanish teachers are working as visiting teachers in the United States and, next year, Spain will receive over 4,500 American language assistants. In addition, over 1,000 students are participating in the Spanish Language and Culture Groupings managed by the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training's Acción Educativa Exterior (AEE) [Foreign Education Action]. The AEE also collaborates with the over 100 bilingual centers in the International Spanish Academies (ISA) network in the United States, in which over 30,000 students are enrolled.
