Saint Mary's College sponsors a month long summer program in Ireland,
Great Britain, and France. I teach a comparative education class with
visits to a variety of educational facilities, including one of the last
math teaching centers in London.

We fly to Shannon, Ireland and start in Limerick, on to Dublin,
Edinburgh, St. Andrews, London (Windsor, Stonehenge,Oxford, Stratford,
Canterbury), and return from Paris.

Over the years I have made this offer to many of you, but nobody has
taken me up on the offer. So here it is for a larger audience. If you
provide 10 students that would go on the trip and take a course
(hopefully the education course), we would be able to pay for your
expenses and give you a salary (although small!!). The price for
students this year is $3620 (air from New York and return, lodging,
breakfast, some other meals, admissions to many historical sites)

This is the 24th year for the program. I have gone 11 times. We do know
what were doing most of the time. We do have a lot of fun!


If your interested, let me know.
