If the World Is Round and Schools Are Flat, Can We Have Global Education in Schools? Contradictions, Questions, and Paradoxes of Global Education in Schools.
Hornstein, Stephen E.
A survey of recent literature on global education and observations of actual global education programs reveal that there is a wide gap between how global education is viewed in the abstract and how it is actually practiced. The argument is made that the nature, conduct, and purpose of schools are in conflict with the goals to which global education aspires. Changes in the basic structure of schools are necessary if global education is to truly flourish. A 37-item list of references is included. (DB)
