What We Don't Know Can Hurt Us: The Shortfall in International Competence.
American Council on Education, Washington, DC. Div. of International Education.
A shrinking, interdependent world has placed an increasing premium on international competence, an area of national priority for the United States. Five steps are necessary for achieving a certain degree of international competence: (1) wide sectors of American leadership, in both private and public life, must recognize the existence and seriousness of the problem; (2) international competence must be viewed not as an isolated problem but as integral to every discipline, profession, and area of national life, central to the success of all Americans; (3) additional resources, particularly national, must be allocated to key programs for international competence; (4) better use must be made of the limited resources already available, including new ways of thinking and new relationships among business, education, and government; and (5) a realistic international outlook must be instilled in all sectors of American life.
