Three Westside teachers, Rob MacGregor, Lauren Smith, and Noelle Stockman have been awarded a grant to study outsourcing and the education system in India! This blogspot will be updated as travel plans are made. Once we are in India it will be updated each day with our current adventures.We’d like to give a quick thank you to our principal, Mr. Paul Castro, for introducing us to the book The World is Flat, which sparked our interest in the topic of outsourcing.



  1. So glad to hear you guys got there safely!! Keep the updates coming! 🙂

  2. somebody recomended the “pani puri” that they sell on the streets. You should try it and post the results on this blog. Happy traveling in India!!!

    Aoun, a very good friend of mine is going to tell you about a place in Deli that you have to visit, a 3000-year-old school that looks just like a school from modern times.
    The photos are wonderful; it has been a joy to see them!
    Love you all and God Bless You,
