International Education: A Look Back and a Look Ahead.
Baumann, Carol Edler
The need for international education is undeniable when we examine the interdependence of our economic and environmental systems and the declining knowledge base of Americans concerning international issues. The President's Commission on Foreign Language and International Studies was established to address this problem, and focused on the following: (1) international education at all levels--K-12; (2) foreign language at all levels; (3) advanced training and research; (4) international exchanges; (5) needs of business and government; and (6) legislative action. The commission concluded in part that commitment to and support of international education as necessity must be made by Congress and by the public at large. (DS)
