Global Education Comes to Russia in 1991.
Tucker, Jan L.
This paper discusses the first international conference on the future of education in Russia held in Sochi, Russia, in September of 1991. The focus was on recent efforts that have been made by educators to develop global education in Russian schools. These efforts include a detailed project for the development of global education in Russia and other former Soviet republics which the participants at the Sochi Conference designed and on which they reported. The report argues that global education is important in Russia and other republics because it teaches about the interdependence of world cultures, it increases social and cultural awareness and communication with other cultures, and it transforms and integrates a culture/nation into the world community and from a closed society to an open society. The report concludes that Russian and U.S. educators interested in the development of global education programs have much to learn from each other. (DB)
