Cerritos teacher, John Haas, wanted to “literally bring the world to his world history class” and, in the process, try to dispel some of the anti-American sentiment overseas. “[The NZ students] were so aware of what is going on in our country,” said US student Laura Ramirez-Guerrero. “And I have no idea what’s going on in theirs. One girl was giving facts about the presidential election. She knew the names, the numbers and exactly how many electoral votes were received by Bush and Kerry.”
