The process, content, critique, and needs of development education are discussed in the first paper. The second paper contains a case study of a 12th grade teaching unit on the topic of the world food problem. A reaction paper is also included. Recommendations from group discussions, which investigated ways in which organizations and systems could further development education, and the summary address are included in the last part of the publication. Included among the recommendations are that development education be promoted as a curriculum perspective that is applicable to all subjects at all levels of education and that the power of the media be utilized to help package and sell such curricula.
