607 – Global Education
Because of our interdependence with other nations in the world, global education shall be incorporated into the educational program for grades kindergarten through twelve. Global education shall promote understanding of the world community and the interdependency of its peoples and systems — social, cultural, racial, economic, linguistic, technological and ecological. Global education shall be provided so that students have the opportunity to acquire a perspective on world issues and problems and an awareness of the relationship between an individual’s self-interest and the concerns of people elsewhere in the world.
