Patriotism in American Overseas Schools: What Ought to Be Taught
Wiles, Dean
Phi Delta Kappan, v87 n8 p590 Apr 2006
Thousands of U.S. citizens live abroad in communities whose mission is to support the nation's military and diplomatic corps. Many members of these overseas communities are deployed for many months at a time in support of U.S. military missions, and many of those so deployed will be parents of students in American overseas schools. Under these circumstances, the realities of the hardship of service to the nation are easy to bring home to students. However, it is necessary to teach them about the substantial contributions that the military forces have made in building the country and in supporting democracy and opposing tyranny and oppression around the world.
