International Baccalaureate Opens Ombuds Office

In August 2007, the Board of Governors for International Baccalaureate (formerly the International Baccalaureate Organization, an international non-profit educational foundation), endorsed the creation of an Ombuds program to solve and anticipate problems as the organization continues its growth. Tony Flatley, IB's former International Heads Representative Committee chair, was recently appointed as the first Ombuds. Flatley emigrated to Canada over 30 years ago as a math teacher, and has managed private and state facilities, in elementary and high-school sectors, in cities and in the country. The IB Ombudsman website just went on line. (IB News; IB Ombuds Home; IB World Newsletter.)
