APPLE's contribution to Lithuania's education system feted in Washington

On Friday, the Lithuanian Ambassador to the United States, Žygimantas Pavilionis, hosted a large group of teachers who played an important role in education during the last 25 years that followed Lithuania regaining independence. Aimed to contribute to a then fledging Lithuanian educational system, APPLE was set up as an organisation in 1990 by American teachers, many with strong ties to Lithuania. Many of the teachers attending the 25th anniversary travelled from distant parts of the USA and even Canada to celebrate the success of this unique venture.
