Wrapping Our Minds Around the World

The U.S. News and World Report – Fernando Reimers

“As teachers provide students the opportunities to understand globalization, how it shapes their lives, to develop the capacity to collaborate across all lines of difference to advance worthwhile purposes and to improve the world, students will recognize education as relevant to their lives, as a way to help them make sense of the world in which they live, and to find their voice in it. Societies make great efforts to educate students in hopes that this will help them advance themselves and contribute through work, citizenship and service. It was not always the case that most students could attend school, and today many of those who do are not engaged. Lack of engagement leads some students to drop out of school, with high costs to themselves and to their communities. The Alliance for Excellent Education estimates that increasing the high school graduation rate to 90 percent would increase earnings for those graduates by $ 7.2 billion, create 65,150 new jobs, increase state and local tax revenue by $700 million and federal tax revenue by 1.1 billion and increase annual gross domestic product by $11.5 billion.”(more)
