With the fall of the Soviet Union, Russian educators found themselves without the support of the Communist Party which had been a strong disciplinary factor behind the country’s schools. For the first time teachers had to face the challenges of the classroom alone. Many world educators ventured to help their Russian colleagues with this task which was so new to them. The forerunner of THE AMERUSEXCHANGE, LTD (TAEL) was among these. Over the past dozen or more years, the experience gained led to the foundation of TAEL and its mission to help build international, cross-cultural relationships that encourage the development and sharing of democratic ideas, methods and strategies.
The primary goal of TAEL would be to organize educational exchange programs between Russia and The United States of America and to provide material support and recognition to students, educators and educational projects. The exchanges would feature participants living with host families and would be open to business and service professionals as well as educators.
