Global Education in the U.S.

Global education imparts information about cultures and an appreciation of our interdependency in sharing the world’s resources to meet mutual human needs.

Curriculum and instruction about regional and international conflicts must present a balanced view, include historical context, and demonstrate relevancy and sensitivity to all people. The achievement of this goal requires the mastery of global communication and development of an appreciation of the common humanity shared by all peoples.

NEA believes that the goal of harmony with our global neighbors depends on a national commitment to strengthening the capability of the educational system to teach American children about the world (NEA Resolution B-39. Global Education 1995, 1998).
