Global Citizenship Education: Role of K-12 Schools
We're living in a time of unprecedented divisiveness about a range of issues, chief among them what the US role on the global stage should be. In the US, civic engagement conversations are playing out against a landscape of intense contention and discourtesy. In a complex, rapidly changing world, we'll make the case for global citizenship as robust preparation for this kind of discourse, and for life in this century and beyond. We'll look at how US schools can and are leading in this space.
