Series 600 - Educational Program
Global Education Code No. 603.10
Because of our growing interdependence with other nations in the world, global education shall be incorporated into the education program for grades kindergarten through twelve so students have the opportunity to acquire a perspective on world issues, problems, and prospects for an awareness of the relationship between an individual's self-interest and the concerns of people elsewhere in the world. Global education, in the education program, is the lifelong growth in understanding, through study and participation, of the world community and the interdependency of its people and systems--social, cultural, racial, economic, linguistic, technological, and ecological.
