    What is the Dougherty County School System's Global Learning Initiative? It's a movement to provide new opportunities to learn and explore the world in new and life-changing ways. Instead of merely learning about a locale, region or country from a book or video, students have the opportunity to become immersed in the history and culture of some of the world's most interesting countries.
