Summary

The report identifies the nature and purpose of global education, outlines steps that have been taken to develop global perspectives within the educational system, and lists recommendations of the U.S. Commissioner's Task Force on Global Education. The rationale states that global education contributes to a fundamental competence in a world context, to educational excellence, and to the nation's vital interests. Components of global education include increased language learning, foreign area studies, learning about cultural concepts, experience with a wide variety of interdependent relationships, examination of critical global problems, and learning to weigh future consequences of present decisions. Efforts to develop global perspectives in education exist in both federal and nonfederal sectors and include both school and out-of-school settings. The four general recommendations of the task force are: to establish a special program of incentive grants and contracts, to improve and expand education for global perspectives, to encourage the incorporation of global perspective within existing or planned United States Department of Education programs, and to provide leadership in facilitating collaboration on education for global perspectives.
