As the trend of globalization has endowed inevitable influences among countries economically, politically, and culturally, the importance of implementing international education has been stressed by many countries worldwide. Taiwan is no exception. The Taiwanese Government has published the “White Paper for International Education for Primary and Secondary Schools” in 2011, but the results are far from its expectations. This research thus aimed to evaluate the achievement of the international education in Taiwan, as well as to explore the major reasons for the meager school achievement. A self-developed Likert’s five point questionnaire was adopted as the major instrument for this research, and the questionnaire was delivered to 70 elementary school teachers in Taiwan. The results indicated that teachers have a strong and positive attitude toward the international education, and schools have worked very hard to promote the international education. However, the insufficient funding and inadequate teacher self-efficacy have contributed a great deal to the lower achievement. Finally, the author recommended that the government should allocate more resources for international education development, as well as provide more opportunities for teachers to lift their international education competency.
