Establishing Internationally-Competent Leaders for the Future: Promoting an Agenda for Social Justice, Equity, and Intercultural Sensitivity
Talbert-Johnson, Carolyn
International Journal of Educational Reform, v18 n3 p174-184 Sum 2009
To be successful in a global economy, U.S. candidates must possess international knowledge, intercultural communication skills, and global perspectives to effectively teach diverse student populations. Unfortunately, teacher education programs have not prepared candidates to be internationally competent leaders for the future. Schools of education with international exchange programs are in a unique position to engage candidates in firsthand exploration of cultural and diversity understandings. In this article, I identify pervasive problems with preparation programs and suggest the need for a multicultural, global perspective with a social justice agenda. I conclude the article with justification for new initiatives to ensure that inclusive practices are promoted.
