Dear Comparative and International Educator:
I would like to share with you my decision to apply for the position of President of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES). I am hopeful that I can count on your personal support, as well as that of the societies that you represent around the world. Having served CIES and its membership through my roles on the Board of Directors and as CIES President (1994-1998), I look forward to building upon my experience in serving the World Council. As President, I will seek to enhance the role of comparative education societies across the world, helping each society to achieve its individual goals while also fostering international dialogue and strengthening relationships across different communities, constituencies and stakeholders. Enclosed, please find my application for the presidency, in particular my platform and goals, which have been disseminated in English, French, Spanish and Portuguese.
Carlos A. Torres
