Sample Discussion Questions (from Global Education Chapter):

1.    Some individuals have opposed the inclusion of global education in the elementary school curriculum, asserting that children should learn first about their own country and only later be exposed to other nations.  Are these individuals correct in holding this view?  What might be the basis of their reasoning?  What valid arguments can you make against these reasons?

2.    How might our nation be different if many more citizens had experienced powerful global education as a part of their schooling?

3.    Are some citizens more in need of global education than others?  Is high quality global education a greater imperative for some groups than others?  If we could afford only to provide global education for half of our children in public schools, which children should get it?
