Global Education.
A worldwide movement.
Text aus

If one takes the long view of human history, it can be seen that globalism is a natural outgrowth of enlightenment ideas which have continued to expand over the past three centuries and have more and more come to guide human behavior. At the center of this value system is the belief that through the use of rational thinking and scientific method, humankind can solve problems; and, in so doing, can progress toward a better life for all. Of course, education is central to the development of rational thinking and to learning to use scientific method.

The main purpose of the study which is reported upon in this volume is to explore, in a very preliminary manner, what is being done in the precollegiate schools of 52 countries in various parts of the world to further the development of a global perspective.

The relationship between nationalism in the world and global education is considered in Chapter One. Evidence of the move toward a global society is cited and the historical globalization process is discussed. Political and ethnic nationalism are contrasted and the problems they create for gaining a global perspective are set forth.

In Chapters Two through Eight, data gathered by the study are grouped and interpreted. Such topics as content and curriculum, teaching methods, teacher education, monitoring, and barriers to global education are examined in the 52 countries. Some existing school networks are described and the status of technology in schoolingin a number of countries also is discussed.

Chapter Nine summarizes the data and makes a series of recommendations to be used as part of a dialogue among those interested in global education.
