We can no longer compete in the
global marketplace as in the past.
Outsourcing is the economical
choice of corporations.
Ingenuity and creativity will be
valued in tomorrow’s workforce.
Most of the jobs our students will
have do not exist today.

How do you prepare
your students to be
citizens of the world?

First you help them define the term “citizen of
the world”. Then you help them learn what
being a good citizen means -- to themselves,
to loved ones and family, to the school
community, to the surrounding community.
One’s actions can be directly linked to one’s
values (beliefs, feelings, and actions that are
important to us), so starting with a basic
understanding of one’s values is essential to
any meaningful discussions on citizenship.
The global context is meaningless unless
students are good citizens of their own nation.

Right before our eyes, all that the education
sector has controlled, dismissed,
manipulated, validated, embellished,
fictionalized, and ranked within an aura of
tradition and ritual may be accessed by point-
and-click. We need to stop chasing
exponentially expanding content. Inquiry,
problem recognition and solution, creativity,
knowing one’s strengths and weaknesses,
communication, and relationships are what
students must be prepared for.

Becoming a world citizen requires knowledge
and experience of other cultures; U.S. schools
do not provide knowledge or experience.
Rather, they provide a cursory glimpse of
others cultures; U.S. Schools do not provide
knowledge or experience. Rather, they
provide a cursory glimpse of others in order
to exemplify how not to be American.
“Diversity Day” does not create world citizens,
it patronizes cultural difference and touts
xenophobia, and always winds up pandering
American culture as Eurocentrically defined.
Only travel and immersion in other cultures
creates world citizens.

Prepare students to be citizens of
the world by being one yourself.
Teach from a global perspective.
