Internationalizing Global Education: A Professional Priority for the 1980s.
Tucker, Jan L.
The field of global education is being advanced by the development of programs for elementary, secondary, and university levels; the production and marketing of materials and classroom teaching strategies; and the creation of policy recommendations at national, state, and local levels. In addition, research efforts are underway. For the next level of development, global education needs to both deepen and broaden its perspectives to mature into a full-fledged domain of research and development. There is a need to reconstruct nation-centered education to fit a world where an ever-growing number of problems are beyond the capacity of individual nations to resolve. The framework for this cooperation has been developed by UNESCO and by other international organizations. Recommendations made for internationalizing global education involve the collection of information about global education, the creation of a professional organization, the meeting together of interested individuals in a major conference, and the development and creation of further opportunities to increase global awareness. Appended is the UNESCO Recommendation concerning Education for International Understanding, Cooperation and Peace, and Education Relating to Human Rights and Fundamental Freedom. (JD)
