An Examination of Objectives, Needs and Priorities in International Education in U.S. Secondary and Elementary Schools
Becker, James M.
This research report compiled by the Foreign Policy Association is a collection of eight articles by key individuals in education and social sciences. The study's central themes are recognition of the rapid social and cultural change in human affairs, the need to review international education developments, and a clarification of educational objectives. Each paper examines how well U.S. schools are meeting the challenge of preparing today's youth for full participation in world affairs. Following a brief introduction by the project director, the essays explore ideas on the structure of, and problems inherent in international education, the high school social studies curriculum, the social sciences framework, information dissemination on world affairs education, technological progress, and concepts of a global society.
