International Baccalaureate & IB North America Joined Forces

|
While researching the previous post (St. Timothy's School: North America's only all-girls boarding school offering the IB), I found an interesting release regarding IB programs worldwide. Like any evolving framework or system (the IB is only about 40 years old), the IB has been defined by two competing groups. Think Betamax versus VHS; Blu-ray versus HD DVD. Organizations that have the same goals but different perspectives and systems for reaching the goals.

In the case of the IB, the IB North America Board (IBNA) and the International Baccalaureate found themselves competing for influence of North American IB programs. For the good of all and in support of a consistent definitions and standards, the IB North America Board (IBNA) and the International Baccalaureate have agreed to merge providing the IB with a single unified governing body.

This can only be good news if you study or work under the IB framework.
